Hyperhidrosis, a condition with many detrimental impacts on the lives of sufferers, affects nearly 10 million people in the US alone. To combat all of the negative side effects of the ailment, iontophoresis has been implemented in many mainline therapeutic treatment schedules. This study by McAleer and Collins determined that iontophoresis is a safe, effective, and inexpensive option in treating palmar, plantar or palmoplantar hyperhidrosis.
