I would like to thank International Hyperhidrosis Society and all the organizers and donors who made it possible to give us an opportunity to try out a free treatment and attend a workshop as volunteer patients. Receiving a botox treatment was amazing experience. I never thought something like botox would stop my sweating for few months. Having been suffering all my years with type 4 excessive sweating on my palms and feet and learning about the research scientist and the organization are doing was an amazing experience. I look forward to attend again given an opportunity once again. It was a dream come true being free from suffering. I hope there is more and more research on this. People like us suffer silently. No one can know our suffering unless you are in that situation. I truly hope and pray that there will be cure that is available for all the people suffering. Thank you once again for changing our lives even though it's for short time of period.

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

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 have suffered from hyperhidrosis for over 20years. I now know that I am not alone. Being a member of this society has changed my life. I am now and will for ever be an advocate for those who are affected by hyperhidrosis.

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

Christine's response to my request was both swift and kind. Thank you for your help; children who are entering adolescence certainly need all the support we can give, and yours is appreciated.
With gratitude,

I have volunteered a few times with this organization at their annual seminars and found the experience to be very rewarding. I saw first-hand how much work is put into organizing and holding these seminars and the appreciation that those with hyperhidrosis have for the Society for the opportunity to receive life-changing treatment. I would be more than happy to volunteer for this organization again.

As a volunteer, as an "outsider" witnessing firsthand the countless lives that have been truly changed for the better, mere words can not express the importance and transformative work performed by the International Hyperhidrosis Society. To those not personally affected by hyperhidrosis or not in direct contact with someone who is, it is impossible to understand its immensely debilitating effects. But through the dedication and professional perseverance of the International Hyperhidrosis Society, individuals are not only being given real and effective treatments -- they are being given long-lost self confidence, normalcy and the chance to be the mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, life-loving teenagers and accepted members of society that they so deserve to be.

Though I have been a treament before knowing International Hyperhidrosis Society's site, I see that it really contains plenty of very helpful information about hyperhidrosis treament. I introduced the site to Vietnamese sufferer group on facebook. I hope many people can apply some of treaments and have great results. I also expect IHS organization expands to many areas all around the world for the treatment can come to all sufferers

The International Hyperhidrosis changed my life. I have been suffering from this condition all my life, it wasn't until now that i decided to do something about it. After reading the stories and information on the website i decided to contact them. I was able to receive free treatment as well as the chance to be a part of this community. I have met some great individuals who continue to inspire me. Some of them include Sophia wastler and Lisa Pieretti. I am now an active volunteer for the organization and continue to raise awareness by educating schools about the condition. I am honored to be part of this organization and will continue to do my part as long as i can.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is the only resource of its kind for people with excessive sweating. Because excessive sweating is still widely under-diagnosed and misunderstood, even among healthcare providers, the information and resources that they provide are critical to so many people. The information on their website can be life-changing for people who have hyperhidrosis.
