Country of origin: International

The International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHHS) recently launched a website targeting teenagers who suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. Through the website the IHHS is offering a free 50-page book called ?Teen Sweat 101? to those interested in learning about coping with this condition and finding effective solutions. Worksheets from the book can be downloaded from the site or the entire book can be ordered through the site or by emailing info@SweatHelp.org.

Both the website and the book provide useful information on tackling hyperhidrosis, providing thought-provoking situations and questions that will help teens gauge how excessive sweating impacts their life. Teen Sweat 101 urges teens to assemble a support ?team? that will lead them to find realistic solutions to their sweating. Other highlights include:

? Listing activities which are avoided because of interference by excessive sweating
? Estimating sweat-related habits, i.e. how often one changes their clothes throughout the day
? Reading case histories of teenagers with hyperhidrosis
? Understanding available treatment options and creating a plan for taking action

The IHHS website provides an international Physician Finder index of more than 900 physicians who treat hyperhidrosis as well as an electronic newsletter, SweatSolutions, which provides monthly updates on the latest developments in hyperhidrosis care.

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is a non-profit organisation that strives to improve the quality of life for those affected by excessive sweating. The Society promotes research and conducts education on the physiological effects of hyperhidrosis, raises awareness about its emotional and economic impact and advocates for patient access to effective treatments. The International Hyperhidrosis Society is composed of members from all over the world, making it a true international network for people who treat or suffer from hyperhidrosis.
