Facial Sweating

Facial Sweating

Facial sweating is destroying my confidence to go to work, it's not classed as a disability and i have to endure working while sweat is actually dripping from my face, my hair looks like i've been swimming.

My Sweating Always Comes With Overheating. Especially My Head/face. But Still No Diagnosis Any Ideas Anyone?

My Sweating Always Comes With Overheating. Especially My Head/face. But Still No Diagnosis Any Ideas Anyone?

I get hot flashes continuously, which always comes with going red and sweating so bad my clothes soak in minutes. If it's chilly outside steam will actually come off my head. Been tested for so many things and seen soo many doctors who have all given up on me even though they've seen it. My head and face are the worst though. It's a constant drip, it's ridiculous. I hate leaving my house. Anyone deal with something similar? Also im 26 years old 5'0 tall 220lbs.

What about head and face sweating? I have thought of trying botox or anything other than meds.
