What Causes Excessive Sweating In The Head And Face?
Causes of exessive sweating:
Hello and thank you for the query.
I have gone carefully through your concern.
There are some pathologies involved in causing excessive sweating.
Usually, the first to be excluded is an overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism.
It is associated in most of the cases with rapid heart rate, weight loss etc.
A hormonal imbalance ( perimenopause period) is another cause of excessive sweating.
Overproduction of catecholamines from the adrenal glands may be another cause.
Lymphoma causes excessive sweating especially during the night.
So, a detailed clinical examination would guide what further exams to do.
You may discuss with your treating physician about the above pathologies.
Hope the information will help you to get diagnosed in this regard.
Feel free to ask in case of any further queries.
Difficult to treat it symptomatically
I would suggest to check the body temperature ( your doctor will need it) and drink plenty of fluids to prevent any dehydration.
Appropriate and specific treatment can only be initiated after diagnosing the cause and accordingly.
Wish you good health.
