sweating, gustatory

excessive sweating of the forehead, upper lip, perioral region, or sternum subsequent to ingestion of hot or spicy foods. It may also be caused by tumours or other injuries to the parotid gland, as in auriculotemporal syndrome (frey's disease). In this condition, thought to be due to some involvement of the auriculotemporal nerve, a red area and sweating on the cheek appear in connection with eating.
