Hello, I have a question ever since I can remember I suffer from over sweating, armpits, feet, and specially my face. What is the cause of upper lip sweating, I go up on stage and give talks regularly and my upper lip and nose are always sweating. What could be the cause for this?

Welcome to e health forum.

Sweating is a normal autonomic response to manage the body temperature in warm blooded vertebrates including Humans. In hot and humid conditions, the skin is cooled by production of sweat.

Depending on the body composition and genetic make up, some people sweat more and others less.

If you are on any medications that increase the body metabolism and temperature, then your body would sweat more to reduce your body temperature.

If measures like antiperspirants and absorbent clothing are not helping, consulting your doctor for medications that can help control your perspiration can be helpful. Some medications like Anti-cholinergic medications can be prescribed for you by your doctor.
