  • Excessive head and face sweating

    I am 63 and for the last 22 years have suffered with excessive sweating on my head and face, which seems to be getting worse.  This is uncomfortable and embarrassing.  If I do anything even slightly energetic (hoovering, ironing etc.) it is worse, and it takes a long time for me to cool down. ...

  • Excessive sweating on my head and face

    This has got worse over the past year or two and it could be a combination of the menopause and severe anxiety. I'm 55 but the sweat drips down my face even when I'm lying down or still. I've had eczema all of my life and chronic asthma but this sweating is not normal. I've read some...

  • So glad I found this group!!

    I've dealt with the same thing you all have! So embarrassing!  I always have a small battery operated fan with me at all times. And I found wearing a nice soft cotton scarf (like a bandana) will absorb the sweat to keep it from running off your face.  There are tons of beautiful...

    Hi Everyone I was diagnosed with hyperhidrosis back when I was 20. Now 26. Recently been working with a doctor to finally find the underlying cause of my condition.

  • Continuing face and head sweats with no help!

    For the past three years I have suffered with the horribly uncomfortable effects of facial & cranial hyperhidrosis . . . a condition that came from nowhere.  To top that off, I live in Arizona, but it isn't just our heat that causes the sweating--its everything.  Like others, my hair...
