INTERNATIONAL HYPERHIDROSIS SOCIETY
November 13, 2012

Like most people, I didn't realize excessive sweating was a medical condition. I thought those that suffered with it were people with poor hygiene habits or 'nervous types' who showed their high levels of anxiety through profuse sweating. I hate to admit this negative prejudice but that was the way I felt. Then, I learned more about hyperhidrosis and was completely ashamed of how uneducated I was. The saddest part is that people who have this condition sometimes don't understand it themselves. Sadder still, they often feel that perhaps they deserve to be shunned or ridiculed. They feel there is no hope, that they alone suffer and that they just have to 'live with it.' Without IHHS, this would be true. I can't express how truly life-changing the IHHS mission is to people with hyperhidrosis. The IHHS website, outreach programs and counseling help bring together a community where there wasn't one before. For the millions of people with the condition, and the millions of friends and families that help them cope, IHHS is a beacon of help.
