Driclor contains Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate. This is an antiperspirant that stops you sweating. Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the armpits, hands and feet is common in lots of people.
By using this treatment, you can stop the sweat gland producing, and keep under control any unwanted smell or sweat patches.
When you apply Driclor to the skin, the aluminum chloride works by blocking the sweat glands. This causes the pressure of fluid within the sweat glands to rise to the point where they temporarily stop sweat production.

How to assemble:
Ensure the area to be treated is completely dry before use to avoid skin burning and irritation. When you first start using Driclor, you should use it once a day, last thing at night just before you go to bed. This is because your sweat glands are least active at this time, and should therefore stop you sweating during the day, when you wake up.
Keep out of the sight and reach of children, do not use after the expiry date which is printed on the bottle and carton after expiry. Store upright in a cool place below 25 degrees.
Some over the counter medicines are only allowed to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. Driclor is one of these medicines.
Just like when you buy this medicine in a high street or local pharmacy, the pharmacist will need to ask you a few questions. This is a legal requirement for selling this type of medicine.
You may not always realise when your local pharmacist asks you the required questions, as this can sometimes be done subtly. When sold online, we need to make sure our pharmacists have all the information they need to ensure this treatment is right for you.
To buy your treatment, simply fill in the short questionnaire and add the product to cart. Then proceed to checkout.
