Tap water iontophoresis is considered to be one of the best remedies for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) on the hands, feet and armpits, and is also almost free of side effects. There is a very good chance that sweating will be reduced to a normal level without damaging the sweat glands. This is achieved by passing a gentle constant or pulsating direct current through the affected areas.
In Germany, most health insurance companies cover the costs of treatment on prescription from your specialist. In many cases, they will also pay for the trial (test phase) for the first 3 months.
