Heat over 65 degrees, any type of activity, house cleaning, walking. etc. In a hurry, stress. This is so embarrassing. My hair becomes wet, sweat drips from my face and neck. People think I am nuts or coming off of drugs. has limited my activities due to embarrassment or can't stay dry enough to fix my hair. I have stopped wearing makeup all together as it just runs down my face. My Dr. will not listen to me. I think she believes I may "glisten" a little. I need help. Please!!!
