International Hyperhidrosis Society

Patient Leader

Hyperhidrosis (extreme, uncontrollable sweating affecting 4.8% of people) is often misunderstood, misrepresented and mismanaged, but for the past 15 years the International Hyperhidrosis Society has been bringing the full range of stakeholders to the table to transform missed opportunities into an impactful mission. From individual sufferers and health providers, to pharma, biotech and regulatory bodies, IHhS provides and fosters advocacy that’s collaborative and cross-pollinating for meaningful improvements in hyperhidrosis diagnosis, care, and understanding. Although excessive sweating continues to cause excessive suffering, we’re working towards a cure. Learn more at SweatHelp.org.
