Excessive Sweating

I am 25yr old male. My body temperature is high when comparing with others. My body will generate heat immediately if a little heat is felt by my body. So I think because of high body heat my body sweats heavily. I can t even stand in warm conditions for a second because my body will start sweating. I sweat even in cold and rainy season. I have checked my blood but doctors said that its normal. I am gaining weight now. I cant tolerate this sweating anymore. My father also sweats but I sweat double when comparing with him. My palm and arm pits dont sweat but my rest of the body sweats. Please tell me a permanent cure for this.

Hello
Your thryoid function needs to be investigated, if not done already. If these are normal, then most probably you have an overactive sympathetic nervous system which is not under one's control and can cause excessive sweating. Maybe it has been passed on genetically from your dad. It is difficult to suggest a remedy without identifying the underlying cause. You may try going to a specialist in general medicine for help.
