Today, I’m going to talk about excessive scalp sweating, and most importantly why you are suffering from this issue. I will also share with you the recommendations you need to follow in order to relieve this problem and get rid of it.
- Why do we suffer from excessive scalp sweating?
Of course, it can be very difficult to answer this question precisely, but I’m going to try anyway and I really hope that I can be of help to you.
Hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, is caused by either a primary focal hyperhidrosis, meaning that your body is genetically going to produce excessive sweat, and in this situation, it’s not very dangerous for your health and all it can do is embarrass you a little, but unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about it.
The second is secondary generalized hyperhidrosis, and it is usually caused by a medical condition and in most cases, interaction with certain chemicals or prescriptions you are currently taking.
Because we are dealing with excessive scalp sweating, I don’t want to recommend using laser treatments or cutting nerve endings to get rid of this problem, which is the usual procedure when someone suffers from excessive sweating in other areas of the body! What I’m going to recommend to you is the following treatments:
The first one is aluminum chloride which helps stop excessive sweating and perspiration; it’s also very efficient at reducing scalp sweating as well.
Unfortunately, aluminum chloride is not well studied and there aren’t many articles and information on how to use it efficiently for stopping perspiration without causing side effects.
You can try it anyway and see for yourself, but personally, I wouldn’t use it.
The second and most important thing you can do is antiperspirant creams, which in my opinion are the best when it comes to excessive scalp sweating.
I know that the idea of applying antiperspirant creams to your scalp is going to sound strange, but people have been doing this for a very long time with gels, so, just add some few drops on the tip of your fingers and massage your scalp very gently, this will also reduce your excessive sweating almost immediately.
Please, if you have a question concerning excessive scalp sweating, don’t hesitate to ask me in the section below, I will be very happy to answer you.
