In brief: Hyperhidrosis

This is a difficult issue.
Extreme cases can be treated with a procedure called a sympathectomy. Less severe cases may respond to serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris), but this is using the medicine off-label. You may want to get a few opinions (dermatology to start with ) about treatment.

In brief: Hot flashes?

I'm not sure how old you are, but I have two thoughts: 1.
"hot flashes" cause these symptoms, and they can start well before menopause even when hormone levels are normal 2. Rosacea, a skin condition, can cause this. Sometimes the medication Clonidine can help facial flushing; ask your doctor if it's something you should try. Various creams can help rosacea. Good luck!
