I can't remember a day without sweaty hands. You can call it a lifestyle. I always have to think about how it will affect me, others and my actions. I can't just do things, I had to give up some hobbies which really made me feel down. I'm glad hyperhidrosis is becoming more 'normal'. Hopefully others will understand our struggle.

Awful and very inconvenient to perform tasks with sweaty hands, axilla, and feet.

I've been suffering from armpit sweat for 30 years, but I was ashamed of myself and couldn't tell my friends, family, or staff at work. I tried various products that are out in the world to solve the problem, but I could not get the desired results, so I considered Botox injection and sweat gland surgery. Occasionally, I used a tight medicine to make my skin shattered. Then I met Dermadry. It has changed my life. I have a lover and can go out to play in the summer. Above all, I am confident in myself and everything is fine. I would like to recommend it to people who have the same problems, and I want them to gain confidence and live with vitality.

I was 7 years old when I realized that there was something wrong with both my hands and feet. I used to carry a handkerchief to wipe the sweat in my hands and I used to wear slippers with cloth material so that it can absorb the sweat from my feet. Because of hyperhidrosis. I'm losing my confidence.

Hyperhidrosis can be maddeningly frustrating. Normal every day tasks become difficult. It can be very embarrassing at times.

I have been suffering from hyperhidrosis since I was 13. My hands, feet, and armpits always get wet when I get nervous or the weather is hot. I refuse or avoid handshakes when around people. I am afraid of what others think of me when they know about my sweaty hands, therefore I don't have a lot of friends. I had to change my school major and dream career due to my sweaty hands.

I started to notice my excessive underarm sweating when I was in my First year in High School. I was embarrassed and gossiped about during my college days and even at my workplace. That led me to depression and to the point of thinking of ending my life. I never wear colored tops whenever i'm outside the house. People who don't suffer this disease will never understand and will see you as gross entirely. I hope people will open their minds that people like me who have severe hyperhidrosis don't deserve to be criticized and instead deserve to be accepted and understood.

I have experienced severe sweating for as long as I can remember. Although I tend to sweat more than normal all over my body, it is most noticeable in my hands, feet and armpits. Some of my biggest daily struggles are: having to change my clothes multiple times a day including going through about 3-4 pairs of socks, using an inordinate amount of paper towels to dry my hands, struggling to use my touch screen phone as well as my touch pad on my laptop, and figuring out what to do with my hands when they are nonstop dripping with sweat.

I am 17 years old, and for as long as I can remember I have always struggled with hyperhidrosis. The older I got the more it affected me. This has affected me very negatively, where it ruined my everyday tasks. It is difficult to write on paper without my hands sliding and smudging the ink. I can’t wear any type of clothing I want and it’s a struggle to even wear sandals/heels.I dread shaking hands with anyone, because I am embarrassed of what people will think.This has caused me to be depressed and it is definitely something not to take lightly. I hope we can shed more light on this topic and someone could read this and relate tremendously.

All of my life I’m living with this hyperhidrosis. Every time I’m a little bit nervous or a little hot, I start sweating. All meetings I go to I start thinking about the meeting and I sweat and it makes me lose my confidence. When I started using Dermadry everything changed and I’m so happy and all the confidence came back to me and I’m so thankful for the company.

I have had hyperhidrosis for all of my adult life. It has caused a huge issue in my professional and social life where I am always shy to shake hands. I finally came across Dermadry and am so excited to try the treatment and finally get over my social anxiety.

So honestly I feel like I’ve struggled with hyperhidrosis for a while now and at first I didn’t know that I had this condition until I felt it was becoming a part of my life in a a negative way and I really did try any way to stop the sweating in my hands/feet. Honestly, I found this product Dermadry and at first I was very unsure about it but I went for it because I wanted any way to stop it and try to feel normal. NOW fast forward and I don’t regret it, yes it may be a lot of money but its honestly so worth it! You may not see your results at first but by being consistent you will see a huge difference! I seriously don’t feel any sweat anymore and I’m so happy it’s life changing:'). I’m a regular person just like anyone, so please try this out!!
