A few weeks ago, I found myself watching “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” on Netflix. I had never heard of this previously, but my boyfriend and I saw it on Netflix and gave it a chance. It is a musical-comedy miniseries that began in 2008 and features Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible.
As I’m watching it, I think it’s cute and quirky. But then, something happens and everything changes for me. I become very interested in a particular character. He is Dr. Horrible’s friend and sidekick. His name is Moist and Dr. Horrible calls him his “evil moisture buddy.”
In the miniseries, you see Moist having trouble opening jars, and holding out his hands asking if he can make anything moist for Dr. Horrible. He also seems to have facial sweating. Does this sound familiar? Does Moist have hyperhidrosis?
I became so curious as to how his character was created. I even visited the official website of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and messaged the contact. Haven’t heard anything yet, but I will let you know if I do.
Here’s a song that Moist sings during the commentary of the miniseries. It’s titled, “Nobody Wants to be Moist.” It is sung by the character himself, Simon Helberg, who also plays Howard in the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Enjoy!

I noticed this too! This made me feel so self conscious. There was another moment in the 2014 SNL Christmas skit. It referenced how awful it was to shake hands with someone who has sweaty hands in church. Lastly, a moment that prompted an investigation on HH online (And I found your website, which is so lovely!) was the character Magnussen in Sherlock. He held a woman’s hand and she responded by saying it was wet and that he was disgusting. (Nice, right?) It is so frustrating that society harps on this issue so much. It is a condition.
