It’s not clear how many people are affected by this condition. It seems to be more common in men, but it does occur in women as well. It affects all ages, although it is most common among young adults between the ages of 20 and 50 years old.
What causes sweating on my forehead?
There is no known cause for what might be called normal involuntary sweating on your face or head (although there may certainly be other underlying medical conditions). Many people think that excessive sweating can have a lot to do with nervousness or anxiety, but there is no direct evidence indicating that this is true. This type of sweat gland hyperactivity might also play a role in certain mental illnesses such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), but again, there isn’t any good evidence linking them together yet. While some experts explain the reason behind excessive facial/head sweats by suggesting an allergic reaction to something like poison ivy or grass pollen, you shouldn’t worry too much about this issue because most people don’t experience these types of reactions regularly enough for anyone else to notice their presence at work or home life.
