Review for International Hyperhidrosis Society, Charleston, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been suffering with hyperhidrosis for the past few years. It just came out of nowhere for me. I don't know if it was because i got older or because of my hypothyroidism. I, of course, at first didn't know anything about this problem or that anyone else suffered from it, like me. When I went to my primary doctor I don't think he knew that much about it either. He referred me to a dermatologist and they gave me this prescription spray that burned my underarms and made them worse. I went back and told them of the burning and they told me to keep using it but also prescribed a hydrocortisone cream. The hydrocortisone cream worked to take away the rash that came from the burning but the spray kept burning my skin. I finally stopped using the spray and went out on my own to find something that works. Through a google search I found the hyperhidrosis Society website and got some samples. I also got something called pit paste and tried out and am still using a number of things just to make it through the day at work so people won't smell me and I won't feel uncomfortable wet. On the Hyperhidrosis website Christine Fleckenstein got in touch with me and kept in touch with me to link me with different websites and tell me about the Botox seminar coming up. Unfortunately, the seminar has been cancelled but I felt like I gained a friend in hyperhidrosid through Christine.
