DRYSOL is a maximum strength topical antiperspirant for persons with excessive sweating or hyperhydrosis. It is different from other clinical strength antiperspirants commonly found in the pharmacy because it contains a larger molecule that blocks sweat longer and reduces sweat volume.
DRYSOL should be applied to dry skin only at bedtime while your sweat glands are less active.
DRYSOL can sometimes cause irritation if applied on broken or recently shaved skin. If applied correctly and mild itching, burning, prickling, or tingling of the treated area occurs, discontinue use and consult a doctor. They may recommend that you use a lower strength like DRYSOL Mild, or an alternate treatment for your condition.
DRYSOL can be purchased in Canada without a prescription. It is available nationally at top retailers over the counter in the deodorant section
DRYSOL Antiperspirant contains Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate (ACH). ACH helps to create a plug at the entrance and inside the pore to prevent sweating.
Maybe you read somewhere that aluminum in antiperspirants isn’t healthy, or maybe causes cancer or Alzheimer’s. Both the American Cancer Society and Alzheimer Canadian Association have confirmed there is no clear link made between antiperspirants containing aluminum and any of these conditions.
