“I struggled with extreme facial sweating for years and when I say extreme, I mean it! I used to carry a kleenex or paper towels or even real towels on my purse to dry my face. I couldn't apply any product because I sweated like there was no tomorrow. I do not live in a warm place (Montreal), but even extreme cold temperatures did not change anything. As soon as it was a little warm (like climb in a bus after a 5 min walk by -20C) I sweated and I was soaked... Well, I have been using Xerac and the day after the first application, it was LITERALLY a miracle, I went out and I walked more than 2 miles by 26C and there was a very light amount of sweat around my nose, and that was it!! I recommend this product! It changed my life!!!!!!”

“My sweating is confined to my head and face. I must be the only one because the posts I've read is under arms, feet and hands. So I went to my dermatologist. I wanted Hypercare but he opted for the slightly weaker medication Xerac to start. It really stung my forehead the first time, I left it on for three hours and had to wipe it off my face. Scalp was okay. Next day head sweat cut by 75 % I'd say. So last night it did not sting at all on my face. Left it on all night. Will see how I do today.”

“I have palmar hyperhidrosis. When I used this, it didn't work for me at all. My sweat literally sweated off the medication. I used every night all summer long and got no results. I've been struggling for at least 3 years.”

“Let me start off by saying how much this has changed my life. This is the most amazing product I have ever used in my entire life. For the past 5 years I have always suffered hyperhydrosis. It didn't matter the weather it was outside, I would always be sweating under my arms. If it was 90 degrees or 20 degrees I would be sweating close to the same amount. After using this product 1 time my sweating COMPLETELY stopped!! I never thought any product would solve my problem but I was so wrong. I am so happy this is now in my life because I can't imagine going back to my old days of sweating. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone suffering hyperhydrosis! This product is life changing.”

“It worked better than I had expected. The day following my first application, I was a normal human with normal armpits. A few days in a row of use, then roughly once a month. My sweating is under control. I've maybe used it twice since the first six months. 3 yrs later, I keep the bottle around just in case I notice excess perspiration beginning agian.”

“Absolutly amazing! I use it every night before bed and in the morning I go to school then work without having to re-apply it or any other antiperspirants. It works like a charm, I highly recommend. It may sting a little the first few times, but it is definitely worth it. I've tried everything possible to stop from sweating but nothing worked, until I tried this.”

“Wow! I had been struggling with excessive underarm sweating for several years, and more recently the sweating was made worse by a prescription medication. I wore only black and other dark colors for months, and I couldn't even wear sleeveless tops because the sweat would sometimes drip down my arms. Finally went to my doctor in frustration and she immediately prescribed Xerac AC, noting that this had worked for many of her patients. I used it very sparingly the first night (dabbed it on carefully), mainly because I'd read about the potential for stinging discomfort. The next day I was still sweating, but only about 1/4 of what I had been. The next night I applied a bit more and it only stung a bit. Next day, NO SWEAT. Recommended!”

“Amazing! Used to sweat so badly under arms! It was so embarrassing to have sweat stains when I was barely doing anything. One night of using this and I instantly did not sweat the next day! And you only have to use it once or twice a week after you stop sweating. Tried everything and this truly works! Stings pretty bad the first time but thought it was well worth it. Did not feel a thing after the first time though!”
