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.

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.

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.

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!

I am currently an undergraduate student with palmar hyperhidrosis who have tried many treatments to manage it, such as antiperspirants, traditional Chinese medicine, and Robinul, but they were ineffective at stopping the sweat or had major side effects. The people at the IHHS enabled me to get a free Botox treatment that finally helped me have dry hands! With my current income, there would have been no way that I could of have this treatment done so soon if it wasn't for them. The staff all are amazing people and the work they do is life-changing for so many. Thank you so much for everything!

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 .
