This is My Story

Camron H.
At the age of 11, I began to notice that when I was nervous my hands became damp. It took until about 13 for that dampness to develop into a 24/7 stream of sweat for my adolescent brain to fixate on. Then began the era of avoidance, doing anything and everything to avoid physical touch. Running from life experiences because my hyperhidrosis & the embarrassment that came with it deemed me inadequate. At the age of 15, I even went as far as to begin taking Xanax to avoid the ever present discomfort of simply existing in my body. Now at the age of 19, I am sober, I am taking my health & life into my own hands, & with the help of Dermadry have gotten my hands down to a very manageable sweat level, making everyday seem a little more promising, and my avoidant nature a little less present. For those who don’t suffer with hyperhidrosis, it would be almost impossible to understand the isolation this condition can put a human through, but it is important for those suffering to know that there is hope to reclaiming your physical homeostasis, and there is a world where you can hold a loved ones hand, shake hands with someone new, hold your baby free of discomfort, & reach out for love without a sense of embarrassment or inadequacy, & you deserve it.
