Treatment For Sweaty Head

My Gp is not very helpful so looking for recommendations for constant sweating head and soaking hair please. Thank you

My GP refered me to a dematologist. She prescribed oxybutynin. I usually take 3 each morning. Its transformed my life!! Ive suffered for 25 years and always put my excess sweating of the face and head down to my weight, but last year questioned why my other plus sized friends did not sweat to the same extent that i did. Taking the medication has literally transformed my life. I urge you to ask your GP to refer you and ask for it. Good luck xx

I have had a very sweaty head since I was 32. I am 68 now. What finally worked for me was glycopyrolate capsules. It was intended to be used for stomach ulcers but was taken off the market in Canada because people taking it for their ulcers stopped sweating. I had to get it compounded for me and took it because of the side effects. I also used “drysol ” deodorant. I put it all over my head but don’t put it on your face because it goes white on your skin. My hair thinned with the hyper hydros is so I shaved it off and went bald. I figured if a man could look good bald so could I. I used to get horrible anxiety about sweating which made me sweat more. Now I tell people that I have hyperhydrosis and anxiety. I no longer worry about what people think about me. I pack a bag of white face cloths with me. I no longer let the sweating control me!

Same as my story. I started with menopause & I thought that caused my sweats but it just carried on. My dr referred me to dermatologist who put me on oxybutynin. Hasn’t cured it but much better.

My Dr just told me that I am starting menopause. A few years back, when I was in the pre stage I would have awful hot flashes. They finally stopped about a year ago. Now, for the last couple of months, I would get cold, where I use to burn up all the time, and I have extreme "sweat pours" I call them. Sweat literal puts off of me in drops. Like water is poured on top of my head and it runs down my face. I don't find that I'm excessively hot when it happens. I've always have been any excessive sweat person, but this is very abnormal for me.
