Why do I pespire after eating chocolate/candy?

Hey guys,

For the last few years whenever I eat candy or chocolate I tend to sweat on my forehead, upper lip and scalp. Does anyone experience this? I was wondering if it could be related to something? Im 23 if it helps...

It's called gustatory sweating. It could be just an inherited trait not associated with any illness or it could be a sign of diabetes, thyroid disorder or an injury to the parotid gland called Frey's syndrome.

If it concerns you, your family doc or an endocrinologist can run a few bloodtests to make sure everything is in working order.
