Hallelujah - There's a Brand New Way To Treat Excessive Sweating Just In Time For Summer
The country's sweat glands are being tested like never before this, and we can CONFIRM they are working. There's been no rain for weeks and global warming isn't doing us any favours here in Turks & Caicos.
The Do It Center's fans must be flying off the shelves.
Which is why the news that there is a brand new way to treat excessive sweating was music to our ears today.
Just this week, the FDA announced that they have signed off on Qbrexza (glycopyrronium) cloth as a safe and effective topical treatment for hyperhidrosis - a condition where you sweat more than normal.
Unlike dodgy chemical blockers, the wipes don't plug the sweat glands, but actually inhibit their sweat production, so it's much safer than other products on the market at the moment.
Dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital said of the wipes:
“Antiperspirants work by preventing wetness from reaching the surface of the skin.
“Their active ingredient is an aluminum salt that creates a plug within the sweat gland that physically blocks the sweat.”
Qbrexza, however, “decreases the activity of the sweat gland itself, so you’ll have less sweat to begin with."
Hopefully the wipes will be available in pharmacies from later this year, but in the meantime, we'll have a some *moist* months ahead of us unfortunately.
