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.
I feel so honored to know about International Hyperhidrosis Society. The society and people working for this organization has given me a reason to live and to believe in miracles.
I have suffered with hyperhidrosis (Non-stop sweating) for 45 years until I came to know about this wonderful organization that gave me a hope and second a chance of living with dignity and positivity.
It changed my life and my prospective completely.
Today I feel positive, confident and I feel I can help others guiding them towards this society so they can start believing; yes there is a help and help through wonderful Non-profit organization such as International Hyperhidrosis Society. Committed to helping people like me. Say no to suffering and say yes to treatment is what I learned through this society.
Thank you International Hyperhidrosis Society. Thank you Executive Director, Lisa J. Pieretti for all your efforts towards changing lives of those suffering from Hyperhidrosis. Thank you Dr. Dee Anna Glaser, IHhS President. Thank you Dr. David M. Pariser, Secretary and Founding Member, International Hyperhidrosis Society, Professor, Department of Dermatology for all your on-going dedication towards IHHS.
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.
I was researching my condition a few years back and I came across the website for International Hyperhidrosis Society and since then it truly has been life changing for me. I have suffered from hyperhidrosis all my life and now that I’m older it has gotten worse. Since I found this organization I have been able to be helped in different ways. I have a wealth of information of products and methods that I have been able to use to be able to help me with this condition. The support that I have had is remarkable. Just when I thought I was the only one with this condition, I have since found others who share this horrible disease. Knowing that I am not alone, is empowering. Lisa is truly a remarkable person. She has made me feel the love and support that has helped me a great deal. I thank you International Hyperhidrosis Society many times over. You are truly a wonderful place that I as a sufferer can find whjat I need to have a better quality of life. Thank you!!!!!
My name is Balla-Rena Jones and I live in Florida. Three summers ago I was a wits end due to my excessive sweating. I had called every where down here and then one of the doctors told me to call the Inernationally Hyperhidrosis Society. That day I spoke to Lisa and she told me that I had something called hyperhidrosis and that there were other people who had this disorder. I had never heard of Hyperhidrosis let alone thought anyone else had this sweating problem. All I know I had been crying my eyes out and I told my husband if this is the way I am going to live out my life I didn’t want to live.
Lisa was so kind and compassionate with me and shared many stories with me. Being 67 I found comfort in her stories then she informed me with regards to the symposium that was going to be held in Washington DC. She saved my life that day!
I went to the symposium and I got to meet other people Who had the same problem I had what a relief that was. I have made some very good friends because of Lisa. Her kindness and love was so appreciated.
I learned about the International Hyperhidrosis Society when the daughter of my best friend was diagnosed with this condition. I was impressed by the detailed information IHS provided regarding the personal challenges everyone affected by the condition face on a daily basis, along with treatment options. I applaud the patients and professionals who continue to bring greater awareness to hyperhidrosis.
IHHS has been a wonderful organization that has helped me tremendously. They are all so kind & I am so grateful to have been able to meet other hyperhydrosis sufferers through this organization.
My experience with them has truly been life changing - they have given me much hope ❤️
IHhS has always been very supportive and promotes a positive community in the Hh world. I am grateful for the opportunities this organization has provided me.
I'll forever be grateful for this organization. Ever since I joined their email list, I was able to get valuable information about the different types of hyperhidrosis and was able to include myself in a clinical trial thanks to their recommendation.
Although we are only 5% of the population, they strive to find ways to help us find the CURE. Thank you!
I have nothing else but good things to say about this organization. They are very supportive with people suffering from HH and they continue to strive day in and day out to find THE CURE! Thank you so much for everything!
I was blessed with the opportunity to meet the leaders of this organization. They are so full of love & compassion for the people that are dealing with this issue! They paid for my travel expenses to speak to the FDA in D.C. about looking into more solutions for ppl suffering with hyperhidrosis. I was completely overwhelmed by the experience and forever grateful!
I have been blessed with the opportunity to volunteer with this organization. My severe Hyperhidrosis has led me to seek countless remedies. This organization provided support resources and education on how to cope with this condition. I have worked closely with the team and I cannot wait to the success of this organization.
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.
I have suffered from hyperhidrosis for most of my life and for years I felt isolated by my condition. I was 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 take a completely hands-on approach with patients to truly understand their needs and concerns. I have continued my treatment with physicians who contribute to IHhs and am happy to give back where and when I can.
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!

Can someone please help me I've just been to granddaughters christening I had to leave my hair was dripping wet sweat running down my face so embarrassing
I have had severe hyperhidrosis most of my entire adult life. It has stopped me from socializing and made me very uncomfortable in social settings. My favorite is when people proclaim stuff like, "Geez, you're sweating a lot!". Thanks,.. I haven't noticed.. Thank good there is a site that is dedicated to help those who have this condition.
I been sweating for a good many years now. I am to the point I can not stand it anymore Whenever I move around my whole body gets soaked. I change my clothing 3x a day. When I sit on a chair you can see a wet spot where I sat. It"s bad.My hair gets soaking wet and drjps. I take alot of medicine, Fentanyl patches, Vicodin, Lyrica, blood pressure.Maybe some of this is causing it but why is it only when I move around? Can you help?
I had been looking everywhere trying to find an answer for Hyperhidrosis but no luck with anything in Australia. I just kept getting a diagnosis of the sweating but no clue to finding a solution to the problem. Kept searching and came across the International Hyperhidrosis Society's site.
I have to congratulate them on giving more answers than I had been able to find with all my other searching I had done. I found this to be a thorough, friendly and helpful place to look for answers. I was sent the latest information regarding this condition with names of professionals to contact here in Australia.
I hope this Society gets all the support they deserve to continue their excellent work. Thanks from a very grateful Aussie.
I volunteer for this organization and they are well-organized and really care about their patients. They go out of their way to make sure that sufferers are made aware of the disease and any upcoming treatments and studies. I have volunteered for many organization and they are a top-notch non-profit!
Christine was very helpful with all my questions. I appreciated her thorough e-mail.
Wow! What an amazing organization that truly cares about people! What a great source of support and information. Everyone that I have come in contact with at the organization is professional and has such compassion! Thank you IHHS for the work you do to help those who have hyperhidrosis!
I first learned about hyperhidrosis through a client I worked with at a behavioral clinic. I saw the debilitating effects of hyperhidrosis on a child worked with first hand. Daily, the child would struggle to hold utensils, writing tools and even simple toys that required assembly were difficult tasks. More heartbreaking not only as a therapist, but as a parent, was the constant teasing from classmates when they were required to sit near or hold the child's hands for a group activities. Comments were frequently made about how "wet" and"gross" the child was.
The parents sought treatment options, and were given the "first line of defense", Botox to reduce the symptoms of her excessive sweating. Unfortunately it was not effective and they declined further treatment due to side effects. If only they had they had known of the many options that are available, perhaps the outcome would have been different.
Being introduced to the International Hyperhidrosis Society has given me that opportunity and the tools to provide options for those seeking treatments. Not a size fits all options for those suffering hyperhidrosis! Not only has the organization further informed me about hyperhidrosis, the available treatments, awareness for patients and doctors, and provided invaluable information regarding studies that can help provided treatments for those suffering with the many forms of hyperhidrosis.
Thanks to the work and dedication of Lisa Pieretti, and her medical friends, countless volunteers, advocates those suffering with hyperhidrosis, they now have hope and options with the International Hyperhidrosis Society.
I just recently learned about hyperhidrosis and I'm surprised at the number of people suffering from this condition . I have been totally impressed by the dedication and endless hours that has been but into IHHS by Lisa and her staff. They have a true passion for helping everyone effected , in such a loving and caring way I feel privileged to have been able to learn from them this past week.
What a valuable non-profit organization which is committed to making a difference in so many lives! I did not realize the numbers of people who suffer from this embarrassing and limiting condition until I became educated on hyperhidrosis by chatting with individuals who suffer. The IHHS website SweatHelp.org offers the most up to date education, informational programs and opportunities to participate in clinical trials with investigational drugs which will hopefully make a difference. Lisa Pieretti is one of the highly dedicated and professional individuals who make this organization tick! I totally recommend the expertise and assistance of this nonprofit group.
