Sweating can be miserable. The first step is to make sure there is no medical treatment that needs addressed. There are some cosmetics that help. Robinul is a pill that often helps. When localized, Botox injections are my favorite.
Hello. Botox is an option for excessive sweating (known medically as hyperhidrosis).
Hope this is helpful.
Excessive scalp sweating - Botox
Botox can indeed be a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating in pretty much any location. Other treatment options include pills and strong topical antiperspirants. Best to chat with your dermatologist to review treatment options and to ensure no underlying cause for this (e.g. diabetes, thyroid problems, etc).
It's been used for this problem before. See an experienced injector and find out if it's a solution for you.
Thank you for your question!

Sweat pours down my face, wets my hair and runs my make up. Can Botox injections stop this?
It would be considered an off-label use as it has been approved for excessive sweating in the armpits, hands and feet but it will also work on the sweat glands on your scalp
Botox Injections Can Be Used to Help Excessive Facial Sweating
Thank you for your question. Many people experience
excessive facial sweating, where Botox can certainly improve this
condition. Please seek a board certified
dermatologist who can give you a proper diagnosis. Best, Dr. Ariel Ostad.
Botox injections are a great treatment for excessive sweating of the scalp. If you are also sweating from the forehead, botox injections can also help but you need to be aware of the effect on your muscle movement. See an experience cosmetic dermatologist or other board certified cosmetic physician who understands both excess sweating and facial anatomy.
Facial and Scalp sweating treatments
Excessive facial and scalp sweating is very common. If there are no other reasons for it, then Botox can be used to decrease sweat. The key is to have an experienced doctor assess you as these treatments are not as easy as some of the other Botox treatments.
I hope that helps

Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis - treatment options
Thank you for your question.
You have craniofacial hyperhidrosis.
I established a hyperhidrosis clinic in 1999 and have written a book about craniofacial hyperhidrosis that is FREE access and available on my website (see link beow).
Topicals are not recommended on the face or scalp.
There are natural supplements called Hyperhidrosis Fighter.
There are anticholinergics via prescription that will help (may help).
If all else fails, Botox is great.
Sympathectomy is he very last option for treating this condition in 2015.
