Iontophoresis

Several readers have asked me if I've tried iontophoresis. Yes I did, many years ago as a teenager. I worked long hours at minimum wage to buy the Drionic equipment and use it in my bedroom, hoping that my siblings would not see me and tease me. It hurt like hell! And it didn't work. But that was a long time ago, so I'm sure the technology has improved.

The doctors at a medical conference I attended recommended the Fischer galvanic unit over Drionic. I tried it briefly at the conference, and it didn't hurt so bad.

Anyone else out there try iontophoresis? Seems like one of the best options out there for the palmar hyperhidrosis.

I have an ionophoresis machine, but it does take up alot time. I'm a full time student and work part time, so my schedule is pretty tight. However, I do try to use it when I can and in combination with drysol. I find that combo works the best for me. Also, have you tried putting vaseline on the tops of your hands while you use the iontophoresis? Especially on any cuts you have on your hands, and on your cuticles.
