What is Aluminum Chloride
Aluminum chloride is an astringent antiperspirant used topically for the management of uncontrollable, excessive perspiration, as in hyperhidrosis.
The prescription products are long-lasting (e.g., for several days) in duration.
Non-prescription antiperspirant products are also available for use.
Aluminum chloride has been used clinically since pre-1938.
- skin irritation
Adverse effects of topical aluminum chloride application include local skin irritation such as burning, pruritus, or prickly sensation may occur following application.
Incident rates for skin irritation are not available in manufacturer labeling; however, the reactions are thought to be infrequent given the widespread use of these products within marketed antiperspirants.
