Do you sweat a lot?
Is it only your face or the rest of your body that tastes salty?
Yes, I'm still here, but helping other customers while I wait for you to reply.
Everyone should taste salty all over except for immediately after showering. There are sweat glands all over the body with the greatest concentration in the head and neck area. All sweat contains salt so we all lose some each day. This can lead to dehydration and depletion of sodium content which can lead to cramps. In hot weather everyone needs to drink more fluids to stay hydrated.
If there is excessive sweating just at the head, that can be caused by hyperhudrosis, overactive sweat glands. Your doctor or a dermatologist would need to evaluate you for that. They can use Botox injections to slow down the head sweating.
There is no disease that causes sweating just on the face.
