“Tap water iontophoresis with direct current is a reliable and effective method of treatment for primary palmoplantoaxillary hyperhidrosis in both pediatric patients and adults.” Of all the participants in this 2014 study, only one did not show improvement using this treatment modality. Also, 89% of those participants reported a decrease in sweating of 50% or greater after iontophoresis treatment sessions.
