Casomorphin an ingredient in cheese has an effect similar to an opioid narcotic which can cause dilation of the subcutaneous blood vessels causing flushing of the face and neck and resultant sweating.

Are you diabetic by chance? Some studies have shown Diabetics to have facial sweating(gustatory sweating) when eating certain foods, cheese being the most common.

Cheese makes you sweat due to the chemicals inside the cheese. It also depends if the cheese is spicy. Most people who have the cheese sweating get it around their neck, under their eyes or their arm pits. There is something that is in the cheese and it goes to your blood vessels then your sweat comes out.

Maybe you get so excited that you are eating cheese, that you can not control yourself. I have never sweated eating cheese. Make sure you are not allergic, or turn on the AC. Good luck!!

I've always gotten the same sensation myself. It's like a cold clammy feeling under your eyes. I'm not sure what it is, possibly a sensitivity to tyramine? Not many people will know what you're talking about when you mention it, they just look at you like "what the hell are you talking about?" But there are definitely other cheese sweaters out there too lol

Don't know about sweats, but I have some wicked dreams on Stinky Cheddar.
