About Drysol (Aluminum Chloride)

How does it work?

The aluminum in this medication is thought to help reduce the amount of sweat released from the body’s sweat ducts. The process is a chemical reaction that reduces excess sweating.

What does it treat?

This medication treats a condition called hyperhidrosis, characterized by excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis primarily affects your underarms, hands, feet or head.

What forms does it come in?

This hyperhidrosis medicine comes in two formulations: a liquid solution and a roll-on applicator. When applied to the skin, it helps control excessive sweating in areas like your armpits, hands or feet.

Drysol vs. Aluminum Chloride

Drysol is a popular brand of hyperhidrosis treatment, and Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate is the active ingredient that helps reduce sweating. Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate is in a range of antiperspirants and sweat-reducing products.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a hyperhidrosis prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Drysol 20 % Topical Solution (37.5 mL bottle) start at $10.75.
