In the winter when it’s cold, I sweat from my head. When it gets warm in the summer, I sweat from my face. What could be going on? Dr. Greene answers:
I’m surprised you’re sweating from your head in the wintertime because most people don’t have a problem with head sweating until they’re exercising and their body temperature rises. Your body is trying to cool itself down by perspiring through your scalp area so that you can then deal with this increased heat through other more efficient routes of thermoregulation (like evaporatory cooling). As long as you’re not doing anything too strenuous right now, just relax and try to get some sleep instead of staying up all night working or studying. You’ll feel better for sure!
