Hyperhydrosis anywhere on the body can be very difficult to try to handle. In other parts of the body there are some treatments that can be considered and it's possible these can also be used here, too, but you need to check with your doc. They include: various prescription antiperspirants, iontophoresis (a procedure in which the sweat glands can be blocked), and more treatments such as botulinum toxin.
