Hyperhidrosis Gets Wall Street Journal Coverage and More

From The Wall Street Journal to MSNBC to The Mash (for teens), summer is shaping up to be the season of sweat stories in the media. This is great news for the International Hyperhidrosis Society (which has received numerous high-profile mentions) and for people with excessive sweating. The articles are informative and provide more people than ever with information about what hyperhidrosis is and how it can be treated. By raising awareness of hyperhidrosis, the articles help sufferers to realize that there is help available. If you missed the news, here are some highlights and links so you can catch up:
