Hyperhidrosis is a highly misunderstood, underreported, and stigmatized condition whose effects are wide-ranging and life-altering. The debilitating condition can take a toll on a person’s quality of life, emotional wellbeing, physical and mental health, and interfere with their social and occupational life. It affects over 365 million people worldwide, yet people are still suffering in silence.
Dermadry is dedicated to empowering those living with hyperhidrosis and continuously striving to educate this public on this widely misunderstood condition, which is why they have launched a new awareness campaign called Voices of Hyperhidrosis.
Voices of Hyperhidrosis is an awareness campaign dedicated to destigmatizing hyperhidrosis and breaking the silence surrounding excessive sweating. We are asking people around the world to join us in raising awareness about hyperhidrosis and its mental, physical, emotional, occupational, and social challenges.
Their goal is to amplify the voices of those living with hyperhidrosis and create visual and textual documentation that explores the individual lives of hyperhidrosis sufferers.
Voices of Hyperhidrosis is currently open for submissions. Derrmadry is asking interested individuals to share a selfie, a photo depicting their hyperhidrosis (hand, foot, underarm, face, etc.) and a short caption explaining their photos and story.
They welcome all of those who currently suffer from hyperhidrosis or have suffered from it in the past to get involved.
Whether you suffer from excessive hand, foot, underarm, facial (or otherwise) sweating, all are welcome to join in on the conversation and break the taboo!
