Abstract The most common nonsurgical modern treatments for hyperhidrosis include topical treatments such as aluminum chloride, iontophoresis (usually with tap water), oral medications such as anticholinergics, and BTX-A. Topical treatments should always be first-line therapy. For those who fail such treatment, iontophoresis is typically recommended for those with palmar or plantar hyperhidrosis, whereas BTX is often considered as first- or second-line therapy in severe axillary hyperhidrosis. Oral anticholinergics are considered after failure of all other nonsurgical treatments.
