We reached out to some members of the Dermadry community and asked them about their hyperhidrosis story and their Dermadry journey. Below is James's hyperhidrosis story!
I have been suffering from hyperhidrosis since I was very young. It's a dreadful thing to have, especially at school and in social situations, like when you are writing on paper or have to give handshakes. As a result, I’ve avoided giving handshakes as much as I can. It’s hard to imagine if you don’t have hyperhidrosis, but writing on paper in school was a nightmare because the paper would always get soaked. It can lead to disastrous situations that can be both embarrassing and discouraging.
Once during my primary school exams, the classroom was way more humid than usual and as a result, my palms were sweating much more severely. At the end of the exam when we were submitting the papers, mine was totally soaked to the point where the ink from my pen smudged immediately as I was writing on it. It was a really stressful experience, and what really made me realize I had hyperhidrosis.
When I first received my Dermadry device, I used it 5 times per week as recommended in the instruction manual. About a month later, I was able to cut down to 2x a week to maintain my results.
I came across iontophoresis when I was searching for a remedy to cure my excessive sweating, which I realized was getting more severe a few months ago. That's when I discovered Dermadry, and after reading up on their treatment and success rates, I decided to make the purchase. I was definitely skeptical to try it out as it was a new treatment to me but by the end of the day, I decided to take a leap of faith and go with Dermadry! I consider it my best purchase to this day!
The treatment made my palms dry, which gave me the confidence to hold my girlfriend's hand and give handshakes when meeting new people. It’s definitely been a life-changer for me. I hope those suffering from the same issue as I can find relief with this machine, as Dermadry is really life-changing equipment.
