Drysol Liquid is a topical antiperspirant solution that is used to treat excessive sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis.
Drysol contains aluminum chloride hexahydrate, a powerful agent that blocks the sweat glands and reduces perspiration. It works by reducing the activity of the sweat glands in the treated area. This is done through the active ingredient of aluminum chloride hexahydrate, which blocks the sweat ducts and causes the surrounding skin cells to swell and contract.
