What is Driclor Roll-on?

Driclor Roll-on is a specially formulated antiperspirant designed to treat excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. It comes in a convenient roll-on form, making it easy to apply directly to the affected areas. The active ingredient, Aluminum Chloride, works effectively to reduce sweat production, providing relief from the discomfort and embarrassment associated with excessive sweating.

What is Driclor Roll-on used for?

Driclor Roll-on is primarily used to treat excessive sweating, a condition where the body produces more sweat than necessary to regulate temperature. This can occur in various parts of the body, including the underarms, hands, feet, and face. By reducing sweat production, Driclor Roll-on helps to keep these areas dry and comfortable.

In addition to treating hyperhidrosis, Driclor Roll-on may also be used to manage other conditions where excessive sweating is a symptom. However, its primary use remains the treatment of hyperhidrosis.

How does Driclor Roll-on work?

Driclor Roll-on works by blocking the sweat glands, which reduces the amount of sweat produced. The active ingredient, Aluminum Chloride, reacts with the water in the sweat to form a gel-like substance. This gel plugs the sweat glands, preventing sweat from reaching the surface of the skin. Over time, the body absorbs the gel, and the sweat glands reopen, but with reduced activity. This process helps to control excessive sweating and provides long-lasting relief.

Who is Driclor Roll-on suitable for?

Driclor Roll-on is suitable for adults and children over the age of 12 who suffer from excessive sweating. It can be used on various parts of the body, including the underarms, hands, feet, and face. However, it is important to follow the application instructions carefully to avoid irritation.

Driclor Roll-on may not be suitable for individuals with certain conditions or sensitivities. Do not use Driclor Roll-on if you have broken or irritated skin, as this can cause severe irritation. Avoid using Driclor Roll-on if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor or pharmacist before using this product. If you experience severe irritation or an allergic reaction, discontinue use and seek medical advice.

How to apply Driclor Roll-on

  • Ensure the skin is completely dry before application.
  • Apply Driclor Roll-on to the affected area just before going to bed.
  • Allow the product to dry completely before putting on clothing or going to bed.
  • Wash off Driclor Roll-on in the morning with soap and water.
  • Do not reapply Driclor Roll-on during the day.

Apply Driclor Roll-on once daily, just before bedtime. As your condition improves, you can reduce the frequency of application to once or twice a week, or as needed to maintain control of excessive sweating.

Continue using Driclor Roll-on for as long as necessary to manage your excessive sweating. If you stop using the product, your symptoms may return. Regular use will help to keep sweating under control.
