Announcement: Introduction in Iontophoresis-Initial/Maintenance
I hope you get the answers you're looking for. It is so good to
be dry and I hope you get this feeling too. I will do anything to help you up, feel free
to contact me whenever you have a question wich is not answered in the Premium Support
(the search butonis a good instrument), i will answer and post it asap. So lets start.
Please read the manual carefully.
You may read this (in addition to the manual) before asking questions.
After initial successful treatment and without further maintenance treatments, usually the
sweating will start to reappear in about two weeks.
Initially the sweating will be only slight, but it will gradually return to pre-treatment
levels, usually after about 3-4 weeks. Further treatments will, of course, keep the
sweating at bay, but the frequency and intensity of treatments required to maintain dry
skin is highly variable: a good friend of mine needs to use the device only once every six
months at a setting of 5 mA (feet), another client needs to treat every day for half an
hour at 24 mA to maintain the same treatment effects.
For the first therapy .....................................................................................I
know from personal experience how good it feels to have warm, dry hands and/or feet after
so many years of being cold and sweaty. It is really quite a liberating feeling to know
that you are now free from the embarrassment and inconvenience of hyperhidrosis

Can i treat hands and feet similar?
You cant achieve the max. possible 25 mA?
How often do I have to change the polarity?
Shall I use hot or cold water?
PC -Device: I've completed 4 sessions till now and everything looks fine, but I have a
problem. After the second session an irritation has appeared, more pregnant on the right
forearm (I used the + pole to the right hand) which can be described as a lot of tiny
itching spots. The water wasn't in contact with the forearm. It was only in contact with
the palm and the fingers. Also, I would like to present my current treatment situation...
I am using 1 - 1.2 l of water for my hands, how much I need to cover all the sweating
regions and I avoid water reaching the spots in which I don't sweat at all (that's because
in the first day I used 2-3 l of water and the contact between water and air on my skin
was painful - being on the back of the hand). I am using 5-6 mA for hands and 10-12 mA for
feet (for feet I use 1.8- 2l because I also sweat on the sides, in fact even more than in
If I set the current higher, it becomes painful and that's why I stopped at 5-6 mA for
hands and 10-12 mA for feet. (for this amount of water)
I am using warm water, but you told me that this xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. The treatment time is 15
These are my treatment conditions. I want you to tell me:
1) If these conditions are, generally, good, because I know that this is individual.
2) Is it good to change polarity every 2 sessions? in the book says every 5th session or
something like that ?
3) Also I want an advice regarding the annoying itching of the forearm skin in those many
tiny irritated spots (I don't know how to call them in english )
4) And one more thing...the creme you said about is this one? xxx
Because I want to buy it.
I have been treating my feet for the past couple of days at
16-24 ma depending on how much it hurts that day. I noticed that the lower the water
level, the more it hurt so I increase it to covering most of the toes. Is that too much?
Pain (one of the longest Post)
<---Screenshot of this post
I've completed 12 hands and feet sessions with my new Idromed 5
There's about 2 cms of water in each tank.
The point where air and water meet at the top of my fingers is unpleasantly painful.
Is this pain normal?
I'm using 5 mA for my hands and about 10 mA for my feet.
Should I keep lowering the current below 5 mA for my hands?
I'm worried that if I lower the current any further the device will not be effective, and
I presume the treatment must be longer.
--------- within this post these Question is answered
Well, I'm 10 sessions in on my new Idromed 5 GS and using it on
my hands only. I've noticed something strange. For the first 8 sessions I had the negative
polarity on my left hand and positive on my right since I read that the plus is stronger
and I want my right hand dry more than anything right now.
The thing is, I noticed that It FELT like the negative was stronger (my left hand felt
more sensation than my right) so I switched the polarities and after two session of having
the plus on my left instead, there's now this unbearable pain located in a very tiny spot
almost where my thumb meets my palm. I'm not sure if its coincidence since I just switched
polarities or what...I'm trying to be as patient as possible with this treatment as I know
I might not get results for another 10 sessions or so...but if this pain persists I don't
know what I shall do. Any help would be appreciated (from Markus or anyone else who's
experienced pain in one very specific tiny spot on the hand)
ps - the electrode plates are starting to get 'patina', it looks like corrosion or rust or
areas of dark discoloration? should I clean them?
