Horrible head and facial sweating.
Doctor Answers 4
I believe like the other doctors on this forum that you will be well served by Botox to reduce your sweating. Best wishes, Dr. ALDO
Botox for scalp and facial sweating
Botox is likely your best option. Make sure you see someone who has several years of experience injecting Botox as injections for sweating must be placed directly in the dermis, not the muscle. There are also areas of the face to avoid due to chance of affecting the muscles.
Face and scalp sweating
Have you tried a medication called glycopyrrolate? It is usually given in pill form, and now they have new topical formulations. Glycopyrrolate is an anti-cholinergic medication that essentially helps to "dry out" the sweat glands. The pills can be very effective in minimizing sweat for some people. Botox is one of the better options, but I would talk to a Dermatologist to see if the oral medication would be worth a try. Take care!

Treating sweating other than Botox
Botox is the mainstay of treatment for head and face sweating. I use a diluted Botox and place micro amounts through the face and scalp. Infini will decrease sweating as well. I haven't done this on the scalp. There is a small risk of hair loss on the scalp.
