I have suffered from hyperhidrosis for most of my life and for many years have felt isolated by my condition. I have been fortunate to find the International Hyperhidrosis Society, an incredible resource for patients suffering from hyperhidrosis. IHHS is a true advocate, committed to furthering research and educating patients and healthcare providers about the causes, management and treatment of hyperhidrosis. The physicians and staff at IHHS are extremely knowledgeable and they take a completely hands-on approach with patients to truly understand their needs and concerns.

On a personal level, IHHS has afforded me the opportunity to meet other individuals with hyperhidrosis and to finally realize that my condition not unique and I am not suffering alone! I encourage anyone who has suffered, or who knows someone who suffers from hyperhidrosis, to connect with IHHS. Their comprehensive website provides all of the latest information, research and tools available to patients. There is a great community available for support!

I am a Junior High School Nurse and recently received some free products. In talking to students about hygiene, it has been useful to be able to give out deodorant samples with instruction in taking proper care of their bodies. It also "softens the blow" while telling them "how NOT to stink"! I hung up two posters outside of my office and the students have gotten a real kick out of them, especially the "I am sweaty all day long..." poster. While waiting their turn to see me, I often catch them reading the poster out loud and they then come in to see me with a smile on their face declaring, "I have hyperhidrosis!" Thank you for helping to educate my students (and adults) in a fun and friendly manner.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

For the purpose of school nurses and limited school funds, it may be helpful to let them know in the initial offer approximately how much the postage will be.

Growing up and sweating a lot just seemed like a quirky issue one had to deal with...until I came across the fact that this condition had a name "Hyperhidrosis" and there were medical professionals and organizations working to treat and educate those with hyperhidrosis. The IHS is a great organization that strives to help and direct towards treatment as well as share best practices. Thank you.

From being so young and sweating all the time I never really paid it no mind because I was just young and thought whatever, but as I got older and people started to make fun of me I knew I was different from everyone else in my school and at home. I feel so blessed to have been able to participate in this experience and really hope their will be a cure for it soon anyone that has this problem its not fun and its just a good thing to know it is certain things you can do to deal with sweating .. thank you to emory and everyone else that was apart such wonderful and amazing people

This is a wonderful organization that gives support to patients and families with Hyperhidrosis. We never knew what condition my daughter had until we found this organization. They have helped us with products, treatments, referrals, and support. We wish we'd found them years ago! I only wish they were more well known because there are countless other people who could benefit from contact with the organization.

I am not sweating! I just can not believe it! Every time I do things that I normally would sweat from, I'm sure to point out that I'm not sweating to everyone that knows me.

IHS is an amazing organization working on research and medical solutions for a very little known medical condition. I am so glad that I have got connected with IHS. They are continually providing information on the condition and helping us find ways to deal with it.

I will stay involved with IHS for the rest of my life!

I've suffered from night sweats my entire life. It wasn't until after ending my collegiate soccer career that my doctor realized that I was suffering from hyperhidrosis (when all my hormones calmed down and my metabolism slowed). My doctor recommended looking up what other people were doing online; that's when I found IHHS. They were wonderful and a wealth of knowledge! Very grateful for this organization!

I have had the privelege of being involved with IHHS for 2 years now and they continue to prove to be dedicated not only to their patients/consumers, but also to the products affiliated with their organization who are dedicated to helping others who suffer from hyperhidrosis. I am so proud to be affiliated with such a great group who continues to help people just like me! Thanks to IHHS, I can honestly say that I sweat happy and sleep wicked!

What an amazing organization. I thought I was alone but now I am not anymore. Knowing that there are scientists and doctors working for us makes me feel relieved.
I am sure these clever people will finally find the solution to our wet problem. Meanwhile I do my best to sweat as less as I can and the weather in the UK is very helpful lol. Thanks for your help guys.
