Treatment for Facial Sweating

It might seem that there is little that can be done to help, but there are some solutions to your facial sweating.  There are some antiperspirants that you can use and that you can buy over the counter in pharmacies.  These include Odaban and Dryclor, and can be used as the course of a routine to manage your sweat problems.  Antiperspirants designed specifically for this more sensitive area are available, and with the normal strength versions you will need to be very careful around the eyes and nose.  Often people can use them across the hair line to a good effect.  They work by blocking the sweat glands within the area applied to, so preventing any moisture from escaping the skins surface.  The effect will be instant and over time you will be able to cut down on the number of times that you use the antiperspirant. 

Botulinum Toxin is becoming a more and more popular treatment for facial Hyperhidrosis.  The Botulinum Toxin injections serve to plump up the tissues and blocking the sweat glands within the skin.  Although not commonly used at the moment it is certainly gaining in popularity as a treatment for Hyperhidrosis. 

There are a number of herbal remedies that people champion as an aid for facial Hyperhidrosis.  These are not proven in any way but chamomile and St John’s Wort are rumoured to be useful when trying to lessen the amount of sweat that you produce.  


Unfortunately facial sweating is trickier to treat when compared to other body areas such as the armpits or feet.  However, the products that are out there are on the whole very good, and can severely reduce the amount of facial sweating that you experience and leave your face looking less red.  Different people will respond to different treatments, as so it is possible that if one remedy is not working for you, another might.
