About the International Hyperhidrosis Society

If too much sweat is making you sad, you're in the right place. We've got the 411 on sweating right here—what's normal, when too much sweat can be a medical problem, and how to kick embarrassing sweatiness to the curb. All this is coming from the experts at the International Hyperhidrosis Society. These people are the gurus of sweat—it's their job (ok, so maybe that's not your idea of a dream career but after you've been here, you'll be glad somebody's doing it).

Seriously, the International Hyperhidrosis Society is an award-winning non-profit organization that has been helping anyone and everyone who sweats excessively. It's mission is to educate medical professionals in the highest standard of care, promote and facilite hyperhidrosis research, increase awareness about hyperhidrosis' emotional and economic impact, and advocate for patient access to safe and effective treatments.

There are no boundaries to the International Hyperhidrosis Society's reach and efforts. It is a true global network of support and understanding building programs that connect those who suffer to those who can provide care, while increasing public understanding of hyperhidrosis.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society was founded in 2004 and its main site is www.SweatHelp.org. There you will find the latest information on hyperhidrosis, open research on excessive sweating, hundreds of pages of medical training education, background on the Board of Directors, the Physician Finder (an ever-growing international index of physicians who treat hyperhidrosis), the popular e-newsletter (SweatSolutions), and so much more. "Know Sweat" is our motto!
