Hyperhidrosis can manifest itself in many forms, and excessive facial sweating is on of them. When this condition occurs it extends to more than just the face, also affecting the scalp and even the neck. When the scalp is affected by excessive sweating, the hair may look oily and dirty. Even though this condition is known as facial sweating, the negative effects are serious as far as the hair is concerned. Blow drying the hair may prove to be a difficult task.
The social problems this condition raises are similar to the ones of hand and foot excessive sweating. Facial hyperhidrosis appears in unexpected moments and doesn’t need to be triggered by factors like stress or emotional uncertainty or pressure.
The condition may manifest itself in the most embarrassing situations, while talking to people, or having a business lunch. With female patients this poses an even bigger obstacle, as they have a hard time putting on make up and maintaining it in good shape. Excessive sweating will dilate the skin pores and the result is that the makeup will run over their face, creating an unpleasant situation. Facial blushing is another condition that may appear in combination with the excessive facial sweating.
Medications are used successfully to cure facial hyperhidrosis. Robinul and Sympathectomy are the most successful in dealing with this condition, either separate or in combination with facial blushing.
