My Life As A Puddle / Maria Thomas

Patient Leader

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) affects five percent of the global population, but I bet this statistic is actually much greater. The problem? Too many people are ashamed of the skin they’re in and don’t speak up or seek help. It’s time to end the stigma. I’ve lived with hyperhidrosis all of my life and offer a unique perspective on this condition that can be mentally, socially and professionally debilitating. I'm creating hyperhidrosis hope and awareness one drop at a time, living my truth and letting others know they are not alone. My story is your story.

As a young sufferer of hyperhidrosis I have found it difficult to explain to others, or even find others who can truly understand my suffering. Maria's blog has provided me, and undoubtedly many others, with positivity and hope that one day this condition will be more widely recognised, and more successfully treated. Thank you, from one of many.  — Matt
