Review for International Hyperhidrosis Society, Center Valley, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Dermatology Technician and also a Practice Outreach Representative for a large dermatology practice. I have had the opportunity, over the years, to volunteer with the IHHS and the testimonies from individuals who are experiencing hyperhidrosis will really hit you in the heart. Their quality of life is drastically improved with the knowledge the IHHS shares with them and then a treatment plan. I am out in the community and lecture to over 10K people a year and it never fails that I meet someone who has hyperhidrosis and they are not aware that this is a real condition that is treatable. It is with a great deal of pride that I tell them about IHHS. We all must work together to keep spreading the word!

Review for International Hyperhidrosis Society, Center Valley, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I work in a busy dermatology practice and I have had the opportunity to also be involved directly with the IHHS on some of their training sessions throughout the country. The most rewarding part of my day is hearing the testimony of the patients. I sometimes feel I leave with a more rewarding experience than the patient. When I took my own, then teenage daughter, to the pediatrician with hyperhydrosis of the hands he said it was part of adolecence. We need every speciality to be educated that there is help for these patients. When you assist in treatment for a patient who has to alter their daily activities due to sweating and they call you back to say they are dry and how much their lives have changed with the help they have been given, that busy day all becomes worth it! There has been the police officer who could not pull his gun from the holster due to wet hands, the public speaker who had forehead sweating so bad it dripped in his eyes, the teacher who could not use chalk, the student who could not do projects with markers because the ink would smudge, the hair dresser who could not hold the curling iron with wet hands, the stories are endless but I am sure space here is limited and others need to post. IHHS is wonderful and treatments are available!
