The one method is to block the flow of sweat. The best drugs contain aluminum salts. Your pharmacist will be able to help. You can also use commercially available products that reduces sweating and also contains a fragrance (anti-perspirant and deodorant). Surgical removal of the glands is perhaps a last resort. Glands can also be removed with liposuction. Botox injections are an option. Use of an electrical current=electrophoresis is very difficult to apply properly in the armpits.
