My Secret Isn’t So Secret Anymore

For Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month this year, I had the amazing opportunity to share my story of living with Hh on a larger scale. The International Hyperhidrosis Society approached me earlier this year to ask if I would consider being a part of their Awareness Month campaign and tell my #HhStory. Although I am usually pretty secret about my condition, I decided to take the leap and trust that a video like this could help others living with Hh and spread awareness and understanding. It’s always important to me to portray Hh as NOT just a little sweat. The video really captures the struggles I’ve faced and the obstacles I’ve had to overcome to get through each and every day. My story is just one of many from millions of other Hh sufferers all over the world. You are not alone. We are in this together.

So, without further ado, here’s my story.

So, I guess my secret isn’t so secret anymore…and that’s okay.

Thank you to the International Hyperhidrosis Society for this opportunity and to my husband and mom who joined me to share their experiences of having someone with Hh in their lives.

To all my family and friends – thank you for your never-ending love and support ❤

Hyperhidrosis Research Study Open

Hi all! I found out from SweatHelp.org that doctors are currently seeking participants with underarm Hyperhidrosis for a medical research study. To find out more about this study, go their website! The study is testing a gel that is applied directly to the underarms, similar to an antiperspirant. Participants may be compensated for their time and travel and volunteers are needed at 12 locations nationwide. Research studies are always important to the Hyperhidrosis community. The more we learn about treating Hyperhidrosis, the better we can help people with excessive sweating. I hope you check it out!
