We wish that every medical condition could be treated with non-surgical methods. With regard to excessive sweating attempts have been made to treat it with different conservative modalities such as lotions (Drysol), oral medications, electronic devices, Botox injections, etc. So far experience has shown the medical field that none of the above conservative treatments provides long lasting solutions. Having said that this does not mean that no attempts should be made. Before any decision about surgical intervention is made one or more of the above modalities should be attempted. One is advised to keep careful records of those attempts for various reasons.
