OK
So what is your question?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
His face covers with oil grease, and wipe or wash it comes back the oil on his face.
I am worried it might be internal issue, he could be in pain. If it's just skin problem it's ok
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It is most likely a skin problem.
If it were internal, he would have other symptoms, such as vomiting , fever, etc.

No idea
Many skin conditions could cause problems.
We can not diagnose like that on the site.
He needs an exam.
Excess sweating is called hyperhydrosis.
Greasy skin is often hormonal, or a form of acne.
Eczema can do it.
