    I sweat all the time, If I exert my self in anyway my hair gets soaking wet, I have mitrovalve prolaspe but take medicine for it, no problem with that. No matter what I do I sweat, Everyone could be doing the same thing I'm doing, and they don't sweat hardly at all. What could it be, I'm 63 and female. I'm on alot of medication, but I don't think it's that. Not to long ago I  went to a dinner and everone was dancing, By the end of the night I looked as if I took a shower, my hair was so wet.

    Hi Constantly sweating,


    There's a medical condition called hyperhidrosis caused by overactive sweat glands.  I recommend discussing with your physician to determine treatment options.


    All the best,
