Scott Keneally’s sweat story featured in the NYT

Healdsburg TOWNS correspondent, Scott Keneally, has just published a humor essay in The New York Times.

The 1,250-word essay, which appears in today’s Styles section, follows the true story of his search for a cure to his sweaty pits (or “axillary hyperhidrosis,” as the condition is known in medical parlance.)

Keneally said he is absolutely thrilled the Times picked up his piece. “I haven’t been this excited since Christmas morning…. circa 1984.”

According to the humorist’s website: “Scott Keneally writes about the stuff that most people keep to themselves. His stories about excessively sweaty pits, chronic bedwetting, crying at Dove self-esteem commercials, and crash dieting on the Master Cleanse have landed in the pages of The New York Times, Jane, Nylon, Details, the North Bay Bohemian, mcsweeneys.net and the humor anthology, Rejected: Tales of the Failed, Dumped and Canceled.”

    Great work in raising awareness that excessive sweating is a medical condition. I”m glad to know that you’ve tried Botox and it worked well for you. Sorry the miraDry didn’t. I look to the experts at International Hyperhidrosis Society via http://www.SweatHelp.org. They have lots of information on excessive sweating. Cheers Scott!!
