I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, so I don't know if this is related. My core temperature is normally around 97 degrees, my doctor said one possibility is that my skin thinks my body is cold and overcompensates to try to warm my skin.
Unless I am sitting very still in a very cool room with a fan on me I begin to sweat. I work in a casino and am constantly moving, so this is when it is at its worst. It is mostly it is my face and on my back, but sweat just starts beading up on my nose and forehead and I have to use a tissue to mop myself 7-8 times an hour which is a problem in my job; I work in table games so I don't have access to tissue without getting it from a supervisor.
When I shower I only use Neutrogena glycerine soap and use no lotion afterwards, even on my face, it is so much worse if I use lotion. I also have mild excema which is made worse without lotion and with the sweat rubbing under my clothes.
I wear minimal makeup, but I sweat with or without it.
I do take Vicodin for a back injury, I have heard that does make you sweat (not sure if that is the cause) but I don't take it often enough to think this is the cause.
Does anyone know this problem well enough to help me? I am going to make an appointment with a dermatologist this week, but the good people here sometimes have better ideas than the physicians.
