The Int. Hyperhidrosis Society has been very helpful when I was looking for Dr. to help my nephew with his problem. They helped me locate a reputable Dr. close to my nephew's home.
Now, he will enjoy his summer! I thank you very much. You have made a huge difference in his life, especially with his self-esteem! Again, thank you very much.

International Hyperhidrosis Society has literally answered every question that I've had since I was young about a serious medical condition that many doctors that I went to did not know how to treat. Hyperhidrosis negatively affects EVERY person who is affected by it in a negative way. I has affected the way that I went outside(night time to prevent unsightly sweat strains and drenched face), my job, school, and personal life(lack thereof). IHS has allowed me to finally learn and manage hyperhidrosis. I even direct my physicians to their website to be informed of the condition, and we use it to manage and plan treatments to battle it. I cannot praise them ENOUGH!!! Best organization hands down. They respond to emails promptly, sends out newsletters that aren't spam but provide actual information and scientific advancements, and provide treatment to individuals who battle with the condition for FREE in return of educating other health care practitioners of the condition. Every effort needs to be made to help IHS to expand to further serve the ill and educate the healthcare providers.

The IHS has helped me immensely. All my life I've perspired profusely but didn't realize that it was an actual condition and that there were treatment options available. The IHS not only identified the problem, but has offered solutions in which to help. Through their online newsletters and notifications to their website, the organization offers solutions and advice on how to deal with my problem. They also schedule annual sessions for medical professionals who desire to become better educated on the topic of hyperhidrosis. I've had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer for several sessions and greatly benefited from the experience. It is my sincere hope that they are able to continue their work in the field of hyperhidrosis prevention. Kevin T.

I participated at an International Hyperhidrosis Society seminar where I received free treatment for my underarm sweating. Truthfully, I was nervous as the seminar approached. But, the IHHS made the treatment process seamless and put all of my worries to rest. And, I'm happy to say that my sweating stopped a few short weeks after being treated at the seminar. I hope to participate again so that I can get the same positive results. A heartfelt thank you to the IHHS for making me feel comfortable at their seminar and for making me experience dry like I've never known. What a life-changing experience!

The International Hyperhidrosis Society not only educates and trains physicians but provide support and education to patients and the general public about excessive sweating. The director, medical professionals and staff of IHHS are all very knowledgeable, accessible, and compassionate. They stay abreast of new products, and treatments and always share both the negative and positive articles, reviews, and interviews regarding hyperhidrosis. IHHS also allows for patients to participate in different treatment options through surveys, research studies, clinics, and demonstrations. Interacting with IHHS is always a pleasure and a relief because everyone is always so informative, courteous, and helpful.

Hyperhidrosis is condition that can affect someone's life profoundly, both physically and emotionally. The International Hyperhidrosis Society is an organization that not only provides education, but also hope and hopefully widespread understanding of this condition.

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

develop and emphasize the volunteer opportunities for this organization and/or hyperhidrosis in general.

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.

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.

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'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!
