Share your Hh story through the StoryCorps Archive

Want to help honor Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month: Share your hyperhidrosis story through the StoryCorps Archive or share your support through listening. 

Help trailblazers Gale & Katie and Elle & David end the silence and stigma by supporting hyperhidrosis stories in the StoryCorps Archive.

Research shows that for healthcare professionals, time pressures, a perceived lack of treatments, and costs often get in the way of candid hyperhidrosis conversations. But for sufferers and loved ones, it seems like it's often unawareness, hopelessness, fear, embarrassment, or past bad experiences that propagate silence.

It doesn't have to be this way. Listen. Record. Share.

Q: What does research tell us about Hyperhidrosis? A: Listen to Hyperhidrosis 101

Pieretti. Colleagues and co-revolutionaries in the under-represented world of excessive sweating, these three friends have been working for nearly two decades with a shared mission to make life with hyperhidrosis (and despite hyperhidrosis) easier, better and less lonesome. 

But we don't want to give it all away. Grab your headphones or speakers and tune in now.
