Summary: Suffering from craniofacial hyperhidrosis? You're not alone - and there are solution' that can help.
Sweat happens to everyone, but not everyone suffers from excessive sweating. Of course, the further anxiety of conditions like hyperhidrosis, that is defined by chronic excessive sweating, is that they don’t target every sufferer in the same way. Some people have hyperhidrosis that affects them during the night when they sleep. Some suffer from hyperhidrosis when they are stressed. Others suffer from hyperhidrosis all the time. Further, some individuals experience hyperhidrosis in their armpits, while others may experience it in their backs, soles of their feet, or palms of their hands. There is also a type of hyperhidrosis called craniofacial hyperhidrosis, which describes excessive sweating of the forehead and face.
I sweat profusely and tried Kleinert' products because I thought for the price it was worth taking a chance with it. I am incredibly happy with the results.
More specifically, craniofacial hyperhidrosis is characterized by uncontrolled perspiration on the forehead, cheek, and/or scalp that manifests separately from the activities or experiences that should typically result in sweating (like exercise). The people who suffer from craniofacial hyperhidrosis experience dampness and even drops of sweat running down their face and neck.
Why is craniofacial hyperhidrosis so problematic?
For one thing, it’s the most noticeable form of excessive sweating because it is the least easy to conceal. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis that targets your armpits, you can purchase underarm pads and sweat-resistant undershirts to protect your clothing from being impacted, to conceal evidence of sweating, and even to alleviate any of the discomfort that is associated with feeling damp and paranoid about sweat stains and sweat odors. When the excessive sweating affects your face and scalp, you don’t have the same ability to conceal both the problem and the alleviation of the problem in ordinary-looking clothing. Moreover, when sweat drips into your eyes, it can cause some safety concerns and interfere with productivity.
What makes it even more problematic is that the kind of hyperhidrosis that typically results in craniofacial sweating is primary hyperhidrosis, and that means there is no known cause for why it’s happening. That also means it’s trickier to try to find a means of stopping it. It’s difficult to treat something that has an unknown cause.
