The Cause Of Excessive Sweating While Eating?
Hello, my brother always sweats excessively while eating, even though the food is not hot or spicy, why do you think that happened? Is there a way to get rid of it?
Hello Dwi, Thank you for the question.
Excessive sweating that occurs while eating (gustatory sweating) appears on the lips, mouth, forehead, head and neck. This condition can occur because:
physiological conditions due to consumption of spicy food, hot food or drinks
certain medical conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, viral infections that attack the nerves, or nerve damage after surgery on the parotid gland
What your sister can do is first find out why. Try to pay attention to the food and drinks consumed every day and see if this excessive sweating is related to certain foods or drinks. If so, all you can do is avoid these foods and drinks. Avoid consumption of hot foods and drinks, and spicy foods. Further examination by a doctor is needed if this complaint is very disturbing to the sufferer. The doctor can give a cream containing glycopyrolate or take medication.
Hope this information helps.
