    Driclor

    Hi my name is kevin I am a below knee amputee and I use the suction type.I was troubled with sweating unti my Dr told me to use DRICLOR it is a roll on there is a spray on but its not as gpod. You wipe your leg,I use baby wipes,let your leg dry then use the roll on. In the morning wipe your legs with baby wipes and dry off. It took three nights of use anf it lasted me three months but everyone is different good luck please let me know if it helps

    sweating in liner

    Hi my name is kevin i am a below knee bi lateral amputee and I have had the sucction fitting legs and I to suffered from excessive sweating and then my doctor gave me something called DRICLOR. when you go to bed I wipe my legs with baby wipes let them dry or dry them then use the DRICLOR its like a roll on and let that dry. In the morning wipe your legs again with the baby wipes and do this for four or five days I think you will be supprised at the results everyone is different the length of time it lasts for me is three or four months before I have to use it again. If your Dr. offers you the spray on version it does not work as good as the roll on.goood luck I hope you get as much relief as I do.Please would you let me know Kevin.

    Suction socket

    you definatly need to get a good fit i have had suction sockets for a good number of years and if you get them right they are very comfortable you should try and persivere and i think you will find they are worth all the effort

    Anti-perspirant

    hi my name is kevin im a bi lateral below knee amputee and i to have had a great deal of problems with sweating in both liners until just recently my doctor prescribed a roll on called dri clor you put it on last thing at night just before you get into bed and wipe it off in the morning with baby wipes. at first you will need to do this every night for three or four then you will find you can extend the time you use it good luck.
