The Fischer vs. Creams & Antiperspirants

In the world of hyperhidrosis treatment, navigating through a maze of options can be overwhelming. From topical creams with tongue-twisting ingredients to recurring co-pays and the never-ending cycle of daily applications, it's essential to find a reliable solution that not only provides relief but also stands the test of time.

In this overview, we’ll take a closer look at hyperhidrosis treatments to compare traditional approaches such as creams and anti-perspirants and the innovative method of iontophoresis with The Fischer.

I. Natural vs. Chemical Hyperhidrosis Treatments

Propantheline, scopolamine, and poldine methylsulfate were among the anticholinergics used experimentally for hyperhidrosis. Topical propantheline delivered by aerosol was effective in decreasing plantar sweating in institutionalized patients. Poldine methosulfate and glycopyrronium bromide were delivered via iontophoresis in two different studies, with some reduction in palmoplantar symptoms. In such prior studies, axillary hyperhidrosis did not respond as well, and systemic side effects were noted in many patients, particularly when higher doses were used.”


Propantheline and poldine methylsulfate sound complex, almost like you’re preparing for an SAT chemistry exam.


However, when it comes to iontophoresis, there’s no need to worry about these chemical names. This treatment method relies on the simple and natural elements found in tap water, combined with a mild electrical current. You can rest assured that you won’t be introducing any potentially harmful substances into your body.

Experience the simplicity and safety of iontophoresis, harnessing the power of tap water and gentle electrical currents to manage hyperhidrosis effectively.

II. Why Relying on Topicals Falls Short in Hyperhidrosis

Using creams and anti-perspirants every day, and sometimes needing to reapply them frequently throughout the day, can become quite a hassle.


While these products may provide temporary relief and can work well alongside treatments like iontophoresis, patients should recognize the limitations when considering a long-term solution for managing hyperhidrosis.

Creams and anti-perspirants primarily offer surface-level relief by temporarily blocking sweat glands. However, they don’t address the underlying causes of excessive sweating. Relying solely on these products for a long-term solution can be inconvenient and may eventually become ineffective over time.


For those seeking a more practical and lasting solution, The Fischer iontophoresis device, which targets the root causes of hyperhidrosis, offers a more promising path to sustained dryness.

III. Choosing the Right Solution for Your Child's Hyperhidrosis

If you have a child dealing with hyperhidrosis, it’s important to take a closer look at the ingredients listed on those creams or anti-perspirants. Carefully reading the label is the first step. After, it’s important to also consult your child’s physician to thoroughly discuss any potential side effects associated with these products. As a concerned parent, you want to ensure their safety and well-being.

Consider asking your healthcare provider about the all-natural iontophoresis treatment option provided by The Fischer. This method utilizes only the natural minerals that are found in tap water and a gentle electrical current. This approach is often recommended for younger patients due to its safety and effectiveness.


When exploring the best hyperhidrosis solutions, you’ll discover that RA Fischer Co. is a trusted and preferred choice for many families.

IV. Breaking Down Costs: Iontophoresis vs. Antiperspirants

Using hyperhidrosis creams and anti-perspirants can end up costing you a pretty penny. The monthly expenses add up fast, with co-pays, trips to the pharmacy, and the actual cost of the products.


It might seem like a convenient solution, but in the long run, it’s a budget buster.
