I've been volunteering at IHHS ever since I was in high school and Lisa and the staff always treated me with care and respect. They go to great lengths to get the word out about hyperhidrosis and raise awareness about this disorder. I've known this organization almost since the beginning and seen them grow and do great things. Thanks to the work that is done, HH treatment and insurance coverage for it has come a long way. They're always in the know about upcoming treatments and work hard to facilitate progress in the field by interacting with scientists and companies that develop treatments for hyperhidrosis. There really is no other organization like this in the world.

Lisa and the team at IHHS have been an amazing partner for Thompson Tee, and their website continues to be a go-to resource for trusted news and educational information surrounding hyperhidrosis. As someone who suffers from axillary hyperhidrosis, I created our sweat proof shirts to help others like myself deal with excessive sweating. I'm thrilled to work alongside a likeminded nonprofit that wholeheartedly shares this mission.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is an amazing organization that is out there to educate, assist and support those that treat and suffer from Hyperhidrosis. www.Sweathelp.org contains an immense amount of information and we always recommend patients that they visit their website for additional guidance. We at R.A. Fischer are teaming up with the IHHS to help raise awareness of this debilitating condition and learn more about treatments like our Tap Water Iontophoresis devices.

IHHS is a great resource for hyperhidrosis sufferers! It is a one-stop source for information, doctors to see, and putting them in touch distributors/retailers of with specialty products, such as ourselves, Hidrex USA, which distribute iontophoresis devices for a long-term treatment solution. Keep up the great work, IHHS!

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is a first class non-profit organization that truly offers a one-of-kind support and education system to those individuals suffering from HH. As a company developing a potential new topical therapeutic for HH, we've had the unique opportunity to work with the IHHS on several occasions and have witnessed first hand how much of a positive impact they've had on the lives of those impacted with this condition. This organization is run by an individual that is seasoned, motivated, organized and truly passionate about creating awareness for HH and helping out those who are affected on a daily basis by HH. For all these reasons, we are and will continue to be a proud supporter of the IHHS .

I have interacted with many organizations as a healthcare advisor, and I can honestly say that the IHHS is one of the most professional, action-oriented groups I have encountered. They connect effectively with patients, healthcare providers and innovators in healthcare such as my clients. The leadership is truly dedicated, knowledgable and organized. A pleasure to work with the IHHS!

Each year I get the opportunity to participate at IHHS seminars where I interact closely with hyperhidrosis patients. It is truly a rewarding experience each and every time I get to see patients leaving with smiles on their faces after they've received their treatments. I look forward to these seminars every year and working alongside this wonderful organization to help others with excessive sweating!

Over the past several years I have had the privilege to attend and assist at IHHS events. Earlier today I had an opportunity to reflect on my experience with a friend, who happens to also be a patient of the private practice I work in. As I was explaining the IHHS to him, my eyes filled with happy tears thinking of the patients who have had life changing experiences due to the wonderful care given by the IHHS.

Excessive sweating is real and with the help of the IHHS, quality of lives are changing! During each event, I learn something new through the patients testimonies. These are memories I carry with me during my journey of caring for patients on a daily basis.

Thank you IHHS for all you do!
