Reviews for Hypercare to treat Hyperhidrosis
Review by Carmellaf (taken for 1 to 6 months):
This product has changed my life. I can wear whatever I like now and not feel self conscious. I am on ADHD medication and that is something that causes excessive sweating. (research it thoroughly if you do not believe that)I thought that I would have to sacrifice focusing for the problem of sweating. No more. I do not have the redness and itching side effects. The only regret I have is not finding a provider who would prescribe this for me sooner.
I had a problem with sweaty armpits since freshman in high school. I told my mom about my problem. She took me to the doctor. When I used it for the first time, my armpits was on fire, due to not drying them up well. Second time I tried was about 5 years later, but I used blow dryer after the shower on my armpits then the medication. No problem. So now I'm 26 and tonight I'm do it again and I'm also using blow dryer to make sure is dry and I don't have to suffer.
I have tried every antiperspirant deodorants out there and nothing seemed to work. I would use like 20 swipes and still be sweating in 5 minutes. Weather it was heat, activity, nervous I would have huge rings under my arms. Finally I tried hypercare the other night and I don't know why I haven't used it before. The next day I saw immediate results I have been using it for 5 days now it itches, burn a little but definitely worth 15 minutes of pain for no sweat marks. I would recommend this to anyone with sweating problems.

Sounds very dramatic, but it has literally changed my life. No more sweaty palms. It's definitely caused my armpits to sweat less, but it hasn't completely stopped that yet. Be aware that you have to apply it every single night (at least at first) and it causes itching and redness, and if you use it on your hands, they will be very dry. However, it's a very small price to pay because it really does stop sweating. For me, it took about 1 1/2-2 weeks before my hands completely stopped sweating, but there was noticeable difference the next day. Worth every penny.
I have had sweaty armpits for years! Tried the napkin trick, black tops, not lifting my arms, avoiding people, various deodorants and not shaving. Wasn't living freely! This stuff works! Doctor prescribed it. I would pay 100.00 per bottle if that's what it took to get it. Don't get excited when you put it on, thinking the more you put on the less you will sweat. This will cause severe itching. A little bit goes a long way. The next morning- no sweat. This product has given me my social life back. Love it.
I had a huge problem with underarm sweating. I would sweat and have visible wetness under my shirt 5 minutes after putting it on. This product has changed my life. I feel completely dry now. I can wear different colors and not have to worry about wetness. I used to actually switch out napkins under my arms to stop the sweating. Once your body gets used to this product, you only have to apply it once a month or so (sometimes even less, like every 2 months in my experience) this product is like a wonder product.
This product is fantastic. The only downside is the itchiness that many (including myself) have experienced. In my experience, using too much at one time or over a few consecutive days made the itchiness worse. Light use as instructed eliminates most of the itchiness and the product is still effective.
A real life changer. I've had hyperhidrosis since high school (now 25) and I was always hiding in dark clothes to hide the stains. It does burn and itch when I put it on but I'd take that over the excessive sweating anyway. Pros definitely outweigh the cons!
This has done amazing things for me! I've been using it for four days now and it's already helping when it says that full effects wouldn't take place until a week. I'm just giving you a heads up that it burns REALLY BAD. I'm burning right now, actually. I think it's completely worth it though. I recommend this.
This product is absolutely amazing! I have only been using it for a few weeks but it is great. I honestly used to always wear black shirts and the same black jacket because I would sweat over nothing and being active (like walking and physical education) made it worst. I finally had a doctor's appointment and told her about my problem and expected her to say that I would have to get surgery or something but instead she prescribed me this. At first I thought I was hopeless and nothing could help but I was wrong. It is a MAJOR self esteem and confidence boost now that I can wear whatever I want. There is just one big problem with this product. I don't know if it happens to other people but it has given me a major rash and it's very hard not to itch.
This is the first time I have ever reviewed a medication, or that one has had such fast results and I hope, will have such an incredible impact on my life. I have experienced underarm sweating for most of my adult life. I am now in my early 40's. Like many, I have had to alter my wardrobe to accommodate my condition. For many years, I just thought it was part of me and that it wasn't really a treatable condition. I just got my doctor to prescribe this and after one night of use, I am sweat free for the first time in 15 years. It is 85 degrees today with 100% humidity- not a drop. Very slight burning for an hour after I put it on, but bearable. I'm hopeful this will continue. Please, if you have this issue, try it.
Great product. I suffered since high school (now 32) with having to change shirts multiple times per day. It made me depressed to be so uncomfortable all day. Once I began using the product, within days there was a noticeable difference. A life changer.
I had been sweating since I was in 8th grade and now I'm (17). But now using this Hypercare has been helping a lot. I had been wearing black shirts all the time, never wore colorfully shirts. And when I wore sweatshirts my sweat would come through. Now I don't have that problem.
I could give this product 20 rating but it only goes up to 10. That's how much I loved it. In a professional setting, you don't wanna smell funky or wear a jacket all day because of sweat. That was me for the past several years. I mentioned it to my OBGYN and she asked me to try this and I did. Boy was I surprised. I don't care about the itchiness that comes with using it. To me that means its working its magic (lol). The best part is that I can wear my shirts and when I take them off, they're not sweat stained. Whoever made Hypercare, please keep making more great products like these.
I never had a major sweat problem, but when it gets hot outside, I immediately get a moisture under my arms and my bacteria combined with my mild perspiration, makes the most pungent odor. This product has stopped that from happening. I couldn't go through another summer of dealing with this. It beats doing Botox injections or surgically having my sweat glands removed. Easy fix!
Review by Recluse to Relieved!!! (taken for less than 1 month):
I've been dealing with Hyperhidrosis since the beginning of high school and it really became an issue when I began college. It was always awful feeling embarrassed/insecure 24/7 (especially because it was so out of my control). People started to not want to guard me in basketball anymore, my ex-girlfriend would make me feel like bad saying she wanted a boyfriend who could actually put his arm around her, etc., etc. But finally I stopped wallowing in my own sorrow and talked to a doctor- he prescribed Hypercare and it CHANGED my life. Don't let your Hyperhidrosis beat you because with Hypercare you can beat it.
PS- The complaints about the itching/burning sensations are completely valid, but I'm willing to cope when the payoff for a normal life again.
Review by This Is amazing! (taken for 1 to 6 months):
This is absolutely amazing, After about 1 3/4 years of sweating I finally had enough when I would sweat through hoodies with huge stains. Non of my friends would say anything about it but my mom (who also has it) finally called my pediatrician and got a prescription. I put it on the first night and it burned alot, but it's nothing unbearable. The next day sweat free. Some days I would forget to put it on at night and go through the day with little to no sweat at all. Not even sweating through my clothes. I still put it on every night just to be safe but it really works!
I would recommend getting this product. Some people say it doesn't protect against smell but it does for me. The only problems is a little itching during the day and a rash.
I have been dealing with Hyperhidrosis (underarms) since middle school and I have tried EVERY SINGLE over the counter product for excessive sweating. My doctor prescribed me Hypercare and from first use I LOVE IT. I have not broken a sweat since first use! I am so relieved.
After suffering over 50 years with excessively wet armpits I asked my doctor what could be done. Hypercare was prescribed and it is such a relief. What is amazing is that it takes very little to be effective, while using too much may increase itching.
Review by Anonymous (taken for less than 1 month):
I just put it on last night for the first time. However I put waaaay too much on and my armpits have been burning and red ever since. However for right now I think it's worth it. To wear the clothes you want without having to worry. No deoderant put on after that application. Still dry.
I used Hypercare in the past, but stopped using it. I decided to use it again yesterday because I have been sweating a ton. Well, last night it was itchy and burning my armpits. I didn't sweat today though! I just put it on about 15 minutes ago and the burning and itching is much worse. It hurts so badly. I am only using this until I can get to the dermatologist to get something that won't hurt so much.
This literally changed my life. I can now wear colorful shirts without worrying about sweat stains. It worked after the first application. My doctor said I'd experience "mild itching" and I wish she would've been more truthful and said "practically unbearable itching" but the longer I use this medicine, the less I itch. I don't itch at all anymore when I put it on. If I use it daily, I get a dry, painful rash in my underarms so I use it every other or every 2 days.
This product changed my life. It works. No doubt. I had suffered from excessive sweating on my armpits since I was 11. I thought I was cursed, and would have to deal with this my entire life. It really had a huge impact on my life because I was always limited on the shirts I had to wear. I could only wear lose black or white shirts. If not I had to wear a black cardigan over everything I wore! Yes that's how bad it was, until I got prescribed Hypercare, when I commented it on a doctors appointment. This had really changed my life. This product worked the very next day! I was truly amazed. THANK YOU HYPERCARE!
Ps. Don't use this product when you have recently shaved, or else it will burn and you won't be able to sleep all night
I am so thankful for Hypercare! It has changed my life. I was dealing with the sweating from 6th grade, I am now a freshman. I finally told my mom why I would not wear cute clothes. It helped right away. Now I don't stay up at night sobbing. But I have no clue how to stop the burning because it is almost unbearable. But I will stick with because I am tired of being bullied for it.
