Generalized hyperhidrosis treatment
The best treatment for idiopathic generalized hyperhidrosis, i.e. not related to underlying metabolic or endocrine disease, is the use of anticholinergics.

Firstly, I think you should see a General Dermatologist to do some tests, it sounds like you have a genetic history for sweating, but other secondary causes need to be excluded. Then prioritise your areas. In Australia BOTOX for underarm sweating is subsidised by the Government, in the UK, the NHS gives an allocation (limited) for your draining area. This can at least take care of your underarm sweating. If extra Botox is available this can be used for you face and scalp.
