What Cameran Eubanks' Hyperhidrosis Diagnosis Does for the Rest of Us

Posted on June 6, 2019

When Cameran Eubanks, star of Bravo’s "Southern Charm," recently revealed she has had hyperhidrosis since she was 8 years old, a wave of empathy and validation washed over the hyperhidrosis community. “Wow. Even her, too?”

Three things happen for us when a celebrity opens up about a diagnosis and shares the fact of their chronic condition with us.

First, they help to destigmatize the condition. The condition becomes more visible and relatable. Suddenly, we see our friends and family changing their attitudes toward our condition, and even toward us.

Second, we feel more hopeful and inspired in our own life. Knowing that a celebrity is facing the same day-to-day struggles we do, all while under the glare of stardom, we are more endeared toward them. We especially feel a connection when they use their voice to bring visibility to hyperhidrosis.

Finally, we feel empowered by the will of celebrities to step forward and take control of the narrative about their condition under intense media scrutiny. When they show the world what it means to live with hyperhidrosis, they offer a roadmap and inspire confidence for how we might do the same.

Whether famous or not, the public acknowledgment of one’s disease is a brave act in the face of the stigma of chronic disease. As hyperhidrosis awareness spreads, acceptance soon follows.
