There is an abundance of literature available that covers iontophoresis in treatment of hyperhidrosis in adults, but much is lacking that focuses on the treatment regimen in the pediatric population. From the research that was completed by Selim, Ghafar, Ali, and Abdel, “it was concluded that using tap water iontophoresis is useful and effective in reducing the sweat output in children with primary palmar hyperhidrosis.”
