I Have Horrific Head Sweats. I Look Like I’ve Just Washed My Hair, It Gets Soaking Wet. I Dread Going To Social Events.
A MyHyperhidrosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

It just starts sometimes for no reason, if I’m out it’s is so embarrassing , it’s depressing me as I no longer look forward to social events and find it’s really affecting my life. I have a family wedding in July which I am dreading because of it. All necklines of clothes get soaked . I am so aware of it all the time and feel very anxious. I haven’t discussed this with a dr. I find it very embarrassing.

Is There A Brand Of Glycopyrrolate That Is Most Effective?
A MyHyperhidrosisTeam Member asked a question 💭
