I have wrung out more clothes from sweating from my head than I care to think about. Doctors, since I was a baby, just said I just had more sweat glands in my head than other people. Ironically, I very seldom sweat under my arms. Every time I go shopping I can't get to the checkout before I am sweating like I just got out of a shower. As I got older I blamed it on menopause when someone commented on how hot I looked. I finally did some research about this condition, and was able to put a name on it - hyperhidrosis. The more I talk about it now, the more people I find who have it in some form or another. My oldest son always keeps his head nearly bald because of the wet hair. My daughters have excessive sweating of their hands and feet (not their heads). It seems to be hereditary. The only doctor who actually listened to me about how depressed and embarrassed I am with the excessive sweating. She is a diabetes doctor. She prescribed oxybutynin, and the amount of my sweating has been dramatically reduced. I am so happy to find a solution, although not a cure. I wish you all a similar outcome, and appreciate knowing there are others out there having the same problem.

I sweat from the top of my head, it is so bad no matter what the weather is. My hair drips and I just want to crawl under a rock. Now starting menopause and the hot flashes make it worse.

Really bad last couple of weeks. I've had appointments and having first knee replacement in a couple of weeks. Saturated head & face etc. Really tired of sweat running down my neck till my bra is wet too. Make up off. No hairstyle - embarrassed & so tired of it all. OK - rave over. Hope everyone is having a better day. Take care.

I sometimes don’t go out because I know I will be embarrassed and hate it when people stare
