Hi there

Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) is the result of an over active sympathetic nervous system (part of the bodies natural stress management system). There are no topical agent (sprays / creams) that seem to really work, however in severe cases there are other options.

I would suggest you consult with a dermatologist as they will be able to advise you appropriately.

Good luck
