Patient-Focused Drug Development on Hyperhidrosis:

Hyperhidrosis Sufferers Spoke – Time for Everyone to Listen

Late last year, the International Hyperhidrosis Society hosted and lead a ground-breaking Patient-Focused Drug Development meeting (PFDD) on hyperhidrosis. You can access all the key outputs from that meeting here.









Hyperhidrosis sufferers were the experts at the PFDD; bravely sharing their stories and struggles. Representatives from the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, medical device makers and other innovators listened and learned about what it’s like to have hyperhidrosis, how the medical system often fails sufferers, and the types of treatment options that are desperately needed for the future.

It’s time now to take the information we’ve collected and spread it far and wide – to demand the attention and help hyperhidrosis sufferers need! We hope you will review and SHARE the NEW Voice of the Hypherhidrosis Sufferer report and the other materials, too. If you or a loved one lives with excessive sweating, the Voice of the Hypehridrosis Sufferer is your report and these are your transcripts. Your participation, feedback and support helped to make it all possible and these documents reflect the experiences and insights of true experts – people like you who live with and suffer with hyperhidrosis

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is sincerely grateful for the generous support and trust of Dermira, RA Fischer, Brickell Biotech, Hidrex USA, and private donors for making this landmark initiative possible.
