Facial Hyperhidrosis – Excessive Face Sweating


Individuals with Severe Facial Blushing characteristically experience a glowing red face that occurs more frequently and last longer than normal blushing. The blushing is intense, constant and lasts for a prolonged period of time. Prior to onset, patients usually experience intense facial heat. The face and neck will usually glow a bright red color. The glow may start over the cheeks, radiate onto the forehead, neck and cover the ears. Individuals with facial blushing may respond with exaggerated blushing to a multitude of stimuli. In extreme cases, those affected with severe Facial Blushing may develop an anxiety condition called Social Phobia. The condition, stemming from hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, often causes the skin to appear greasy. It may occur alone or in combination with facial sweating.


FACIAL SWEATING – Excessive Face Sweating

Slight increases in temperature and humidity are the stimuli for facial sweating. The sweating usually involves the entire scalp and face. It affects both men and women. They find themselves soaking with sweat on the face and scalp while doing the most minimal of activities. Women usually wear their hair short and cannot wear makeup because it runs. Wearing towels around their necks is not uncommon. This is believed to be a genetic condition and is not related to being overweight.



The severe sweating causes embarrassment and frustration to those who have this condition and is difficult to explain it to those who do not suffer from it. Many later find that they avoid social outdoor functions and prefer to stay in very cold rooms. The uncontrolled and embarrassing situation of facial sweating and blushing can be effectively treated with Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) with an 80 – 85% success rate. The same exact procedure is usually performed to cure sweaty hands and armpits.
