Q: WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT PROFUSE PERSPIRATION? IT'S THE PITS! — Jamie Heist, Placerville, CA
A: There are quite a few new options. David E. Bank, M.D., a dermatologist in Mt. Kisco, NY, steers us to the local drugstore for Certain Dri, an antiperspirant with a high concentration of sweat gland-constricting aluminum chloride. Also good-though you'll need a prescription-is Drysol, with even more aluminum chloride (about 20 percent). For severe perspiration, a dermatologist may recommend Botox injections under the arms (at $1000 for the pair).
