I suffer with this distressing problem. I HATE it so much, my face and hair get soaked, and I end up dripping over everything, so embarrasing and uncomfortable. I do nothing but moan and complain when it happens. It makes me HATE the summer. The recent heatwave we had, nearly drove me insane !! I have always thought it goes beyong being "normal" sweating.....anyway, I was recently relieved to get a diagnosis from a dermatologist (after my GP referred me) It is called CRANIOFACIAL HYPERHIDROSIS (excessive sweating) Other places people generally get it is, palms of hands, souls of feet or armpits. I am not excessive in those areas, just my head and face. I have been offered tablets, but the side effects can be quite bad. As it happens, I was also offered similar tablets for irritable bladder symptoms (Vesicare) I am hoping they will sort both problems out ?? The dry mouth side effect is severe, it even spreads down my throat, making it hard to swallow at times. I'm still waiting for it to help my problems...early days still.
