Ahead of Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month, Dermadry sat down for an interview with Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Hope Mitchell, MD to learn more about her first-hand experience diagnosing and treating her hyperhidrosis patients.
In this interview, Dr. Mitchell guides us through her educational background, what led her to pursue a career in dermatology, and whether her first introduction to hyperhidrosis was during her time in medical school.
She reflects on why excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a highly stigmatized medical condition and the common symptoms she sees in her hyperhidrosis patients. She opens up on the obstacles and challenges that her hyperhidrosis patients face in their daily life, activities, and routines, as well as the social, emotional, and occupational challenges of the condition.
Listen to her discuss her hopes regarding the future of hyperhidrosis research, tips and tricks for those suffering from hyperhidrosis, and the future of telemedicine in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Watch the full video to hear her treatment recommendations, the pros and cons of iontophoresis treatment, and her thoughts on Dermadry’s iontophoresis machine.
Thank you to Dr. Hope Mitchell for taking the time to speak with us and help us raise awareness of hyperhidrosis, and available treatment options!
