Excessive Head Sweating How to Treat and Cure Your Problem

Sweating of the head may be relatively rare but it is treatable. Find out how in this article.

Excessive head sweating actually has a medical term - cranio-facial hyperhidrosis. This can mean that either the face, the scalp, the neck or a combination of all three can have excessive sweating.

Obviously, this can be highly embarrassing and impossible to hide from others. Let's see how we can treat it.

The Face

A medical grade antiperspirant can be applied to the face to stop this sort of sweating. Additionally, if the area where the sweat emerges from is quite small then something like botulinum toxin could be used.

For instance, some people only have a little sweat that is limited to a small area of the forehead. In this case, a few injections of this toxin could be used to paralyse the sweat glands for a few months. It does not come cheap however.

The Scalp

This area can be difficult to treat because the hair obviously gets in the way. If you are a man and you don't mind having a completely shaven head then a medical grade antiperspirant could definitely help you.

Otherwise, if you find that anxiety or worries about sweating trigger your excessive sweating of the scalp then you could try beta blockers or antidepressants.

Neck

Usually, excessive head sweating here is only on the back of the neck but can also be on the front. In these cases, an antiperspirant is the best suggestion.

Combination Of All Three

If your entire head sweats then you could consider surgery. Be warned however that it does carry significant risks and does not always work. But surgery is usually only recommended if you have a combination, particularly if your hands also sweat.

Make sure you do a lot of research and only use a surgeon based on a recommendation from another patient. Hyperhidrosis forums are often the best place to start.
