I’ve been using my Iontophoresis machine once a week for many months now with great success! However, in early October, I noticed my hands were starting to sweat a little more than usual. I was really concerned about this and felt like I might have formed an immunity to the machine.
To help, I started doing treatments more than once per week. At one point, I was using it three or four times in one week. Still nothing was working.
I remembered one of my readers from NYC had said that the water here is pretty soft and sometimes doesn’t work well with Iontophoresis. Until October, I hadn’t had an issue with the water or effectiveness of the machine. I was told that adding baking soda to the water can help by adding minerals and electrolytes.
After adding baking soda to my treatments, I noticed a significant difference. My palm sweating is now more under control. Adding baking soda does make the treatments a little more uncomfortable. It irritates my skin a little more, but it’s worth it!
Sweathelp.org has an article dedicated to Iontophoresis. In addition to baking soda, it says you can even try crushing Robinol tablets in the water.
I’ll let you know if the baking soda continues to work!

I am currently on day 5 of iontopheresis but I don’t see any difference, maybe I should add baking soda too
Hi Thilis! Keep at it. I usually see results at 8-10 days. Are you doing treatments every other day?
Yes I do it everyday, and right now I’ve noticed some change on my hands, for now I’ve been dealing with only my hands and my feet I think they are getting worse, I am a bit worried
I know that Iontophoresis can work differently for everyone. I would contact the makers of your device to ask if they have any suggestions. I use the R.A. Fischer machine and the initial treatments were every other day. You could try contacting their company to ask for advice. email@example.com They have been helping me out a lot.
