advantage of people with hyperhidrosis!

A reader earlier commented negatively about the International Hyperhidrosis Society, alleging that the organization has been putting out false information. I have no personal connection with this organization, and no reason to profit from their success. I do think that they offer valuable resources and that teenagers should visit the Teen Sweat 101 website. Surgery is recommended only after all other treatments have failed. To be fair, I do think the International Hyperhidrosis Society needs to push doctors and medical insurance companies to make iontophoresis more widely available. (Many doctors offer only Botox treatment because it is more profitable.)
I really don't have much time to blog these days, and I'm sorry for the delay in responding to non-shysters who have reached out to me.
