About the International Hyperhidrosis Society

Founded in 2003 by an elite team of world-respected physicians and experts in hyperhidrosis research, the International Hyperhidrosis Society is the only independent, non-profit, global organization that strives to improve the quality of life of those affected by excessive sweating. The International Hyperhidrosis Society knows no boundaries; it is composed of people from all over the world, making it a true global network of support, resources and understanding.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is committed to reducing the symptoms, anxiety and social stigma associated with excessive sweating by offering education, support and medical resources to the 202 million affected children, teens and adults worldwide. It is our mission to promote hyperhidrosis research, educate healthcare professionals in optimal diagnosis and care, raise awareness about the condition's emotional and economic impacts, and advocate for patient access to effective treatments while increasing public understanding of this debilitating medical condition. As part of our mission, we continuously build programs that connect those who suffer from hyperhidrosis with those who provide care, while increasing public understanding of excessive sweating.

Be sure to browse our rich online content starting with comprehensive discussions about normal sweating, excessive sweating, and hyperhidrosis. Search our hyperhidrosis Physician Finder that helps anyone with excessive sweating find medical help, check out the up-to-date information on excessive sweating treatment options, and check out our in-depth collection of hyperhidrosis insurance and reimbursement tools, including downloadable forms, which helps sufferers work with their physicians and health insurance plans to secure financial coverage for necessary treatments. There are practical tips to make the most out of appointments with physicians, information on hyperhidrosis clinical trials and a free e-newsletter, SweatSolutions that keeps our 50,000+ subscribers current on hyperhidrosis news and medical breakthroughs. And because hyperhidrosis usually starts in the teen years, the IHHS has created an award-winning teen workbook, Know Sweat Now, and launched a nationwide Know Sweat in School campaign.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is the world's largest organization dedicated to hyperhidrosis. If you are a member of a news or media organization and would like to connect with medical experts, patient advocates, and hyperhidrosis sufferers, please contact our co-founder and Executive Director, Lisa J.
