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. Starting to become severely depressed in tears when i'm at home most of the time, could really do with some support and ideas about this.

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.
