Welcome to Healthcare Magic

Not to worry. Avoid excess hand washing as it will prone to eczema and dry skin but sweating will still be there. There are topical anti-perspirants you can apply on your palms you can get from Pharmacy. Best treatment is small surgery on the neck region to destroy the small nerve body which causes sweating then you will have complete cure. It's called Sympathetectomy. Consult a Neurosurgeon in this for best treatment.

hi friend
Dont worry about ur problem, excessive sweating over palms called a hyperhydrosis.
most common things is Generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, occupational stress, phobias. If thyroid function test normal, you should be consult a psychiatrist for stress, anxiety related disorder, otherwise consult dermatologist they will help u with iontophoresis technique, it will close sweat pores partially.
all the best

Hello, welcome to HCM. Excessive sweating is a condition called hyperhydrosis. It could be due congenital, due to excessive sympathetic activity or disorders like throid function derranged or diabetes. You should visit a dermatologist who can prescribe you aluminimu chloride containing anti perspirants, anti cholinergic drugs or botulinum toxin based on your condition. Wish you good health.
