Frey Syndrome Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy The Frey syndrome involves sweating on one side of the forehead, face, scalp, and neck occurring soon after ingesting food as a result of damage to a nerve that goes to the large saliva gland in the cheek (the parotid gland) diverting the nerve to the face, scalp and neck. Frey syndrome is the most common cause of sweating after eating (gustatory sweating). Gustatory sweating is also a rare complication of diabetes mellitus in which case the sweating is on both sides of the head and the severity of the sweating may be mild or substantial. This distressing problem is difficult to treat.
