Help With Facial And Scalp Sweating.

Help With Facial And Scalp Sweating.

I’m really desperate for advice on how to manage this cursed. I don’t even need to be active for sweat to be pouring off my face and making my hair wet. It’s getting so bad I don’t want to leave my home because I’m so embarrassed

I live in the UK and up till about 2 months ago I suffered just the same. I tried every lotion and potion going. Thought I'd call the Dr again in sheer desperation and he suggested we try a medication used to help with incontinence (I laughed a lot but would try anything).. Its changed my life, I still sweat but normally, I can work and still feel fresh. The medication is prescription only oxibutin. What a difference, I'm still in shock when I get home from work or a day out in the sun with dry fresh hair :)

I take Oxybutynin which really helps. There is also Probanthine

I practiced what I preached (in my earlier post). I took short video clips of myself from dry to pouring off head and showed it to my doc during my July 31 visit. My pictures were worth a million words! He saw firsthand how very little it takes (activity such as snapping beans, emptying small light garbage cans in my house, and loading washer...) for my head and face to get soaking wet. I am waiting as I text for an RX from him to help the downpour !!! Not sure what he will choose to give me, but I had a notebook with every medication friends on this site mentioned they were using. I’ll post once I have it! Hang in there!!

MichelleCollins I have that same prescription but have not been able to use it yet because I have some other medical issues were trying to solve! I’m hopeful it will work. So glad it is working for you! Thanks for sharing!
