Drysol Antiperspirant is recommended by experts for those diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. It does come with a price, though. Drysol is available in the United States by prescription only, but is sold without a prescription in Canada (and thus available online to U.S. consumers), and can be quite pricey for an antiperspirant. But users say that one bottle lasts a long time because it doesn't have to be applied every day. One dose of Drysol Antiperspirant can last up to a week, according to manufacturers. Reviewers say that it can be quite irritating, especially for the first few days of use. If you prefer a milder formula that is almost as strong, experts say that Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant Advanced Solid (*Est. $8 for 1.6 oz.) is an excellent option. Drysol is available in both liquid and roll-on formulas and can be used on underarms, palms and soles.
