Journal of Drugs in Dermatology Releases Breaking Sweat Research
For Immediate Release - April 24, 2018
Center Valley, PA:
New research in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology shows that people suffering from chronic, extreme sweating (the medical condition hyperhidrosis) wait 3 to 10+ YEARS before seeking treatment and that the most commonly recommended treatments for this often “secret,” yet disabling, genetic condition provide the least satisfaction.
Hyperhidrosis affects 4.8% of the population, making it more common than peanut allergies, psoriasis and melanoma but less frequently discussed or cared for.
With its recent research, the International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHhS) is highlighting imperatives to improve awareness of hyperhidrosis, make new treatments available, and to advocate for prompt satisfying treatment.
