General & Family Physician Dr. Prahlad S. Patki's  Response
Medically this is called Hyperhidrosis. Normal sweating will depend on a number of factors like Climate, heat , pollution etc. When this becomes excessive, it is noticed by the individuals. Usually it may be a self limiting disorder amd will require some adjustments like drinking more water, avioding alcohol and spicy food. Cold drinks will be helpful. If not controlled, one can think of medications like Probanthine, Glycopyrolate , herbals like Abana.
Your doctor will choose the right one for you.
Best luck
