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.

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!

The IHHS was first set-up almost 10 years ago to fill a void of useful, balanced and accurate information for patients who suffer from excessive sweating. Our company supported the first grant to IHHS because our market research indicated that was nowhere for patients to seek this information. We are very pleased with the continued success of IHHS, and we wish it many years of serving this previously neglected population.

We have been partnering with the IHHS since 2005 and love it! They are a great organization that is here to make a difference in people's lives and help make them better. They've got great information available and are always willing to help in anyway. It's an honor to be a part of their wonderful organization!! We plan on continuing our partnership with them as long as they will have us, which we hope is for a very long time.
