There are cases where the forehead is hotter than ever because we are living a stressful time and we are therefore subject to hot flashes, just as trivially it can be a consequence of having ingested spicy foods that maybe we are not too used to.

It is sometimes said "cold hands, warm heart", but this is not the situation we are considering. When the forehead is hot but the hands are frozen, it may be due to anxiety which also creates thermal imbalances in our body. The "power of the mind" some say.
