The Cause Of Excessive Sweating Is Only On The Head And Forehead?
, I experience excessive sweating on the head and forehead. How do I fix it? And what symptoms are there?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Increased sweat production is not always a symptom of an illness. The head and forehead area is inhabited by many sweat glands, so it is easier to sweat than other areas of the body. This sweat can be produced more when you are doing a lot of activity, are in a hot temperature environment, or also after eating. Drastic emotional changes, for example when experiencing panic, anxiety, or excessive fear can also trigger this condition.
Increased sweat production you need to be aware of is dangerous if it appears accompanied by an increase in body temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius, appears very excessive in certain parts but does not occur at all in other parts of the body, appears dominant at night without any apparent cause, or also other complaints arise, for example, drastic weight loss, lumps in certain body parts, heart palpitations, and so on.
Some conditions that are prone to trigger excessive sweating include:
Essential hyperhidrosis, which is an increase in sweat gland activity with no clear cause, but is thought to be closely related to genetic factors Secondary hyperhidrosis, which is associated with certain diseases, such as infections, diabetes, menopause or pre-menopause, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, cancer, heart attacks, nervous system disorders Side effects of drugs or withdrawal symptoms, etc. You can check your complaints directly to the doctor and find the danger signs above. The doctor will provide treatment according to the cause of your complaint, it can be enough with observation, administration of drugs, surgery, and so on. It is also possible that you will be referred to a dermatologist for further treatment.
Strive to avoid living in an environment that is extremely hot. When you are active, wear comfortable clothes made from absorbent sweat. Use clean paper towels to wipe your sweat. Make it a habit to shower regularly, wash your hair every 1 to 2 days, and avoid using too thick cosmetics on the face area.
