Alternatives to Drysol?

I am a 27 year old woman and I have been suffering from hyperhidrosis of the axillary (underarm) for 2 years. I have it pretty badly, even when it's 10 degrees out here in Ohio my arms are still drenched, which just makes me that much colder (besides the fact I can only wear black sweaters). NOTHING over the counter worked. I ordered Maxim online and after working for a few weeks it stopped completely. I even tried taking a break from it and trying again. I just ended up wasting money

I finally resorted to buying Drysol online through a Canadian pharmacy so I didn't have to pay for my doctor's visit. It worked well for a couple of months and then wore off completely. I took a 6 month break and have bought more and am trying again~ I'm so desperate at this point

I've used it for 3 days and have still been soaked (and I literally mean SOAKED). BUT today it's 1pm in the afternoon and so far no sweating! I'm super excited but I know it's going to wear off again.

I would REALLY LOVE INFORMATION ON BOTOX or other anti-perspirants like Drysol. The surgery is too dangerous in my opinion, as bad as its is I can't even imagine my entire body permanently sweating as a side effect!

I need to find a dermatologist or MD that would do the Botox underam (most do it but not underarm). somewhere in OHIO. I've done a ton of online searches and found nothing. Please help if you can. I'm afraid to even let people hug me because they might feel the wetness...
