Dear Umakanta, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Condition you are suffering from, is known as hyperhidrosis. This is a neurological problem, not psychosomatic. A number of methods can help like iontophoresis, local powder application, anticholinergic medications, Aldry antiperspirant spray (Curatio pharma), Botox injections to name a few. Please consult a local dermatologist for proper treatment.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari's  Response
HI umakant
sweaty palms and feet as a purely psychosomatic illness, but this view is gradually fading. While psychological factors can certainly exacerbate the condition – when one begins experiencing sweaty palms in a social situation, for example, the stress induced by inappropriate sweating can cause even more sweating to occur – it is generally accepted now that the underlying cause is physiological.
The exact causes is still debated and there is no exact treatment in Mordern medicine for this. So consult the Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine for your treatment without sideeffect
Consult your nearest Ayurvedic Physicians
