Profuse head sweating and facial sweating (also known as Facial Hyperhidrosis) isn’t a good thing to experience to say the least. Myself having suffered from hyperhidrosis all my life, I know how bad certain situations can get. Excessive sweating of the head and face is perhaps the most difficult form of hyperhidrosis to deal with, because you don’t have the luxury of being able to keep your head in your pockets, or beneath your shirt. You could do this but it’s not advisable considering the dangers associated with roads!
Joking aside, there are several options open to you to stop your profuse head sweating, without putting your head in a bag or under your shirt. You have the option of a range of treatments, some natural remedies and some surgical. However, as the natural methods seem to be more popular among excessive facial sweating sufferers I’ll discuss those for now.
To stop excessive sweating from the head and face there’s a few things you can do straight away to ease your problems, some of which you’re probably doing already as it’s common sense, but definitely worth mentioning.
These techniques are enough to help you better manage with sweating from the head and face so make sure you put them into practice to see the results.
When it comes to facial/head sweating there are a few options open to you. Botox is perhaps the most successful, however it’s also the most painful and most costly (ignoring surgery). You can expect to pay between $1500-$5000 for one session, which you’ll have to repeat again and again every 6 months or so. In the some cases though you may just be able to get your Insurance company or health service to stump up the payment/treatment and you can get it for free. Speak with your GP/Derm to find out more about it.
The less intrusive options are that of topical treatments and wipes. The stronger antiperspirants such as Drysol aren’t recommended because of their strength. However, MED e TATE wipes are a good option. They’re delicate on the skin and they’re said to penetrate deeper having a longer lasting effect on facial sweating.
