The pathogenesis of palmoplantar hyperhidrosis (HH) remains unknown. A causative therapy is therefore not possible yet. Step by step treatment for palmoplantar HH is advised. This includes: topical aluminium salts, tap water iontophoresis (TWI), botulinum toxin (BTX) injections and endoscopic thoracoscopic sympathectomy (ETS).

Mechanism of action of iontophoresis in the treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis.
TLDR
Sweat glands from the palm of a patient with hyperhidrosis were examined before and after treatment with tap water iontophoresis, disclaiming the currently accepted theory that mechanical ductal obstruction is the mechanism of action of this method. Expand
