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.

The INTERNATIONAL HYPERHIDROSIS SOCIETY (IHS) is an amazing organization truly dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by excessive sweat. They're doing a great job coordinating the efforts of the medical community, private businesses, to schools aligning them with their mission to serve those with excessive sweat.

I wish they were around when I was going to school! Keep up the good work!

IHHS has been raising awareness for several years about a long-overlooked medical condition. It offers up-to-date information on its comprehensive website, connects patients and physicians, provides training and educates the public at large; and, above all, facilitates access to care through multiple actions (insurance reimbursement tools and physicians training sessions, among others.) Outstanding services and dedication! I’m very grateful to their staff for their kindness and extraordinary support.

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!

Hyperhidrosis can have significant emotional and economic impact on patients. The IHHS is a relentless advocate, committed to promoting research, educating healthcare providers, and raising awareness about the condition in order to help improve the lives of the patients they serve. I encourage all of my patients who struggle with hyperhidrosis to visit the IHHS website for information and for support.

In short, the International Hyperhidrosis Society changes lives. I can say this because my life began the day I learned of IHHS and started receiving treatment. Suddenly I was managing my condition rather than it managing me.

After treatment a whole new me emerged. A confident, stronger, me. I quickly recognized that others were suffering in silence just as I once was. They deserved to live life without the symptoms this condition afflicts. They needed to be told help was available.

The IHHS is an invaluable resource for sufferers. Armed with the latest research and the brightest physicians, I knew I wanted to get involved to help spread the word.

As an advocate for the society I have seen first hand the good works this nonprofit does. Coast to coast they promote awareness, treat the condition, and educate. The IHHS improves the quality of lives for sufferers. Lives are changed. I have seen it.

Thank you IHHS and keep up the great work!

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

triple in size to reach more sufferers that are unaware treatment is available.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society goes out of its way to benefit those afflicted with this medical condition. They stay on top of the latest treatments and even train doctors to be sure patients are informed and get the treatment they need. There are many people suffering with hyperhidroisis and I know they will continue to do as much as they can to help those who reach out to them.

Hyperhidrosis is a little known condition that is seen as "no big deal" to those who don't have it. However, it can be socially devastating to those who do have it. The International Hyperhidrosis Society is by far the best resource for those suffering from this condition. They do an amazing job of educating sufferers on the causes and treatments of this horrible condition.
