I noticed I had hyperhidrosis when I was a child. It made me a very reserved person because I was scared of making physical social contact with people. There’s a stigma attached to sweating, and so it often held me back and made me avoid social situations completely. I would try and avoid situations where I might have to shake someone’s hand or give them a high five. I had to anticipate when these moments could happen and it just really stressed me out.
I have severe hyperhidrosis on my hands and moderate hyperhidrosis on my feet and underarms. My hands are what always bothered me the most as the sweating was really excessive, while my feet and underarms generally only sweat excessively in the warmer months.
When I first received my iontophoresis device, I was using it 4-5x per week, because my hands were severely sweaty. Now during the maintenance phase, I use it maybe a couple of times per month, sometimes not at all. My hands are completely dry now and I only do a top-up treatment once in a while.
I was very skeptical. I am not one to really read instructions on things, but as I was a little nervous about trying it out, I read the entire instruction manual to make sure I understood everything. I even reached out to someone who had tried your product and made a video review to make sure that it really worked. The idea was just a bit scary, and the thought of putting your hands in water to treat excessive sweating seemed a bit strange if I’m being honest! But I am so glad I decided to try it!
Honestly, I really needed help. Just thinking about my sweating would make it worse, and it was making my life so difficult, as I was at a stage in my life where I was traveling a lot and meeting new people.
I searched for devices that could treat my hyperhidrosis and that’s how I came across Dermadry and decided to reach out to via Instagram because I really wanted to try the product and review it.
My first impressions were that you guys really believed in and stood by your product and you answered all of my questions really quickly and I even spoke with a member of your team on the phone because I had a lot of questions. You mentioned that the founder of Dermadry also suffered from hyperhidrosis, so It was comforting knowing that the person who started the company completely understood what I was going through.
Dermadry has really changed my life for the better.I’m more outgoing, and willing to shake everybody’s hands and no longer afraid of social situations.
I started a new job since starting my Dermadry treatments and I’m just excited to shake everyone’s hand as I’m no longer embarrassed about my sweaty hands.
My sister who has obviously known me my whole life even came up to me and commented on how dry my hands were. That’s when I knew that Dermadry had really helped me. Sometimes, it’s the little things that just make you feel really grateful.
