My Head Sweats a Lot?

I am embarrassed by this but my "head" sweats a lot, usually when I'm out in public buying groceries just walking in the mall window shopping or cooking dinner. The doctors I've seen say it is menopause. Ha! It is getting worse every year and last year I had a complete hysterectomy. My hair stays soaked and the sweat feel "slimy" with no odor (thank God). Anyone have a remedy? I just don't want to go out anymore,

OMG I am so glad I looked this up again. I found some relief. I am a retired beautician and have an idea to help. I used Sea Breeze on customers who suffered from psoriasis, full strength to the effected area. That usually worked well for them, especially until their stress calmed down. Since it is a scalp treatment, I tried it on my sweaty head. I don't carry it around with me, but at home I have a narrow top squeeze bottle that I use close to my scalp. This astringent helps close pores and refreshes the scalp. It does smell medicinal, but that's what it is and that usually fades away.


I am amazed at how many of US there are. I've had this situation forever. Have all the symptoms everyone has described. My Mother & her sisters had it too. I'm 61 went through menopause at 40, had a hysterectomy after 50, am boarder-line diabetic, over weight, have osteoporosis/arthritis, take medications, have crohns disease (an iliostomy) and have been very stressed out. (Recently loosing 4 family members in 3 years, including my husband & son and had to sell my parent's estate). I'm hoping that since these devastations are now over, perhaps my sweat head will subside. I usually tell everyone I am "allergic to humidity" and barely get through summer. I think we should have a support club, "The Sweat Heads". Take care everyone. Sue from Ohio

I am so happy that people are talking about this I thought that I was the only one that had this problem, I don't have to do nothing and my head and neck and face just drip I get so embarrassed it is a all year around problem I can't do my hair or do my make up cause it just sweats off so anytime I am seen it is with my hair up and no make up, I can't wear a heavy coat or hat or sweaters in the winter and sometimes I even have to roll the window down in the car in the winter (my poor family).


I am a little over weight and have a thyroid problem but this started before I became over weight. If I go to the gym I am dripping wet by the time I leave and humiliated. I have been to the doctor the dermatologist the neurologist and they say there is nothing that they can do one of the dermatologist told me that they would have to cut my head off to solve the problem. If anyone has any ideas I am open to anything. I clean peoples houses for a living and let me tell you it is very, very embarrassing by the time I am done cause I am soaked.

I am 47 I have had this problem for about 9 - 10 years now but in that time I have been a bit over weight and I have always enjoyed a drink after work. 4 weeks ago I started a Healthy diet stopped the drinking.


There has been a definite improvement My head sweats are still there but there is a 30 to 40% improvement. So I think the answer is change your lifestyle. Cut out booze fatty foods and get more exercise.
