Hi starz, don't know if you are on anything for sjogrens, evoxac or salagen, but a side effect of them is drooling and sweating, nice combination. I get hot flashes even on estrodiol and under stress or lots of physical exercise I sweat profusely at times from head to foot and get red and it is embarassing but oh well, that's the way it is. Maybe I'll move to Alaska, but I'd probably sweat there too! A quck cool down to stop sweating is a cold wet wash cloth rolled up and put behind your neck, wrap the ends around to the front. It cools you down fast. They make some kind of thing you put in the freezer like that that works on the back of the neck. I guess that's the sweat point or something. It's called a personal cooling system, but it could be really dorky or not work. Don't know.
