excessive sweating is something i had since childhood.
Since hypertension can cause autonomic stimulation
Mostly if it does not interfere with your daily activities, it is better to ignore it

it does have effect on my life to a certain extent. I sweat anytime I get out of AC.
it gets embarrassing
causes hygeine problems as well.
Which hygiene problems?
What would you recommend as the next steps for this condition of mine.
The further tests needed will be prescribed by dermatologist
Since we have already ruled out general conditions
would you recommend visiting a dermatologist or taking some initial medication to see if that reduces / controls the sweating problem ?
I think it is better to go to a dermatologist

We need to avoid unnecessary medication
