I guess you will need a consultation from dermatologists. Have taken any uptil now? if not then I strongly recommend you to take one soon to solve out what and why this is happening before you can decide on any cure.

some labs need to be done like :
these labs are supposed to rise in case of hyperthyrodism (thyroid gland disease causing excessive sweating )
you need to exclude it first before consulting adermatologist
