HOW YOU CAN HELP
With over 365 million individuals with this condition, you have likely met many who struggle with hyperhidrosis. The best way you can help those who struggle is not by making a big deal about the situation.
If they need to wash their hands or wipe their hands before giving you a handshake understand that they might have hyperhidrosis. If you do end up shaking their wet hand, however, ignore it as they are likely stressed about it themselves. Just wash your hands afterward, don't ask them any questions as they are most likely self-aware about their condition.
The International Hyperhidrosis Society is a non-profit focused on providing aid to millions and funding research so we can understand Hyperhidrosis better.
