Face and Head

Hyperhidrosis of the face or head (craniofacial hyperhidrosis) often also affects the neck and may occur with facial blushing too. Because the face is the first thing other people look at, patients with excessive sweating of this area find this bothers them more than other body areas that might be affected.

Treatment for facial hyperhidrosis include strong antiperspirants, botulinum toxin (unlicensed and only used by an experienced practitioner because of the potential effects on the facial nerve) and occasionally some systemic medications.
