WHAT DRICLOR IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR

Driclor Solution (called Driclor in this leaflet) contains a medicine called aluminium chloride. This works as
a strong anti-perspirant.
Driclor is used to treat very heavy sweating (perspiration).
Everyone sweats (perspires) to some extent, especially when it is hot, but some people sweat and become
wet and sticky even under normal conditions. Embarrassment, stress and tension can make this problem
worse.

Unscrew the cap carefully.
Throw the cap away.

2.

3.

secure the roller ball.

How much Driclor to use
 When you first start using Driclor, you should use it once a day, last thing at night just before you go to
bed. This is because your sweat glands are least active at this time. This should stop you sweating during
the day.
 When sweating has stopped during the day, you may be able to cut down to using Driclor twice a week
or less.
How to apply Driclor
1. Make sure that your skin is completely dry.
2. Apply Driclor to the affected areas of your skin by using the roll on applicator (like you would use a
normal roll on anti-perspirant).
3. Only use Driclor on your skin. Avoid getting Driclor in your eyes, lips or mouth.
4. Wash the Driclor off in the morning and do not re-apply.
5. You can continue using your normal deodorant as usual. Driclor is not a deodorant and does not contain
any perfume.
What else you need to know when applying Driclor
 Driclor can stain clothes so let it dry before you put on any clothes.
 Avoid contact with jewellery and metal surfaces as Driclor can discolour these.
If you forget to use Driclor
 Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
 Apply the next dose as usual.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
