Drug Description


Drysol Liquid is a topical treatment prescribed for hyperhidrosis; a condition marked by excessive perspiration. 

As an antiperspirant, Drysol Liquid works by targeting sweat-producing cells, thereby reducing perspiration. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before applying Drysol Liquid and each time you get a prescription refill, carefully review the provided medication guide and patient information leaflet. For queries or further details, seek guidance from your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

Drysol Liquid is suitable for use on arms, feet, and hands.  

Initially, this medication is typically applied once to the sweaty area before bedtime. Following 2 to 3 days, your doctor may advise adjusting the frequency of application to once or twice a week. 

To use Drysol Liquid effectively, follow these steps: 

  1. Wait a minimum of 2 hours after bathing or showering before using this medication. 
  2. Ensure the intended treatment area is completely dry before application. 
  3. Apply the medication by moistening a cotton ball or using your fingers without rubbing it in. 
  4. Allow the applied medication to dry and keep it on for 6 to 8 hours. 
    • If using on the hands or feet, wrap the treated area with plastic wrap and cover with a mitten or sock. 
  5. In the morning, cleanse the treated area with soap and water, then gently towel dry. 

Refrain from using Drysol Liquid on skin that has been recently shaved, waxed, or is currently broken or irritated. 

Exercise caution to avoid contact between this medication and your eyes, mouth, nose, or lips. If accidental contact occurs, immediately rinse with water. 

To maximize effectiveness, follow the precise guidelines for applying Drysol Liquid. Refrain from using more of this medication or more frequently or longer than your doctor advises. 

Promptly inform your doctor if your condition continues or worsens.
