In Honor of Hispanic Heritage Month and Spanish Speakers Worldwide International Hyperhidrosis Society Publishes Important New Patient Booklet in Spanish
Date:10/1/2007

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States and the nearly 400 million Spanish-speakers worldwide, the International Hyperhidrosis Society has published a new and updated Spanish version of its popular patient education brochure. The Society will also launch its informative Web site (http://www.SweatHelp.org) in Spanish later this year, and is sending experts to Argentina to speak at the 21st World Congress of Dermatology on hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a serious medical condition characterized by sweating that is profuse and above and beyond what is normal or necessary to regulate body temperature or in response to stress. Hyperhidrosis is an embarrassing and debilitating problem that can lead to depression, social isolation, and employment limitations. Approximately 3% of the world's population suffers from excessive sweating including an estimated 13.5 million Spanish-speakers (more than 1 million in the United States alone!) Up until now, it has been difficult for Spanish-speakers to find reliable, comprehensive, objective, and current information about the diagnosis and treatment of excessive sweating.

The new International Hyperhidrosis Society Spanish brochure, containing the most current hyperhidrosis information available, is being offered all over the world to people who suffer from excessive sweating, their loved ones, and their physicians - at no cost! To receive a free copy of this easy-to-read and informative brochure, just send an e-mail with your complete mailing address to Support@SweatHelp.org. Please include "Spanish Brochure" in the subject line of your message.

"Most people - even physicians - don't understand that hyperhidrosis can and should be treated like any other serious medical condition," says Flor Mayoral M.D., a board certified dermatologist and clinical faculty member at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. "The International Hyperhidrosis Society's efforts to educate the Spanish-speaking community about the diagnosis and management of excessive sweating are crucial to helping sufferers to get the help they desperately need."

The International Hyperhidrosis Society is committed to serving the needs of Spanish-speaking hyperhidrosis sufferers and their families. The Society helps excessive sweaters to find physicians experienced in treating hyperhidrosis through its online Physician Finder database (which includes physicians worldwide and is searchable by state, country, and U.S. and Mexico postal code), will host an educational session at the 21st World Congress of Dermatology in Argentina this month, and will launch its highly-regarded Web site (http://www.SweatHelp.org) in Spanish later this year.

To order a free copy of the new hyperhidrosis educational brochure in Spanish, e-mail Support@SweatHelp.org and include your complete mailing address in the body of your message and "Spanish Brochure" in the subject line.
