Hello Javed,
Since you are unable to afford for thoracic sympathectomy which gives nearly consistent and permanent results in these patients, I would like you to try out Drysol therapy as of now. Drysol is a composed of 20% aluminium chloride hexahyadrate in absolute anhydrous ethyl alcohol and should be applied at night to the palms and soles after drying the skin and covered with a paper. Clean it off in the morning with baking soda. As you start getting results, the medication need not be applied on a daily basis.

Dermatologist Dr. Kalpana Pathak's  Response
Hi Javed,
The most cost effective treatment is use of aluminium chlorhydrate solution available as aldry in market. Wash your hands and feet and let them dry. Then apply this lotion overnight for a week and then later on once in a week. You can also take 1% formalin soaks to reduce sweating. These are two cost effective treatments available. Hyperhidrosis increases with stress, anxiety, nicotine and caffeine. Avoid all these, do mind calming meditation and if the need be take an anti anxiety drug for few days. If nothing helps Botox and surgery is the only answer. There are many people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, however the level of your anxiety it seems has led to it being a serious problem for you. So try to keep yourself stress free. Take care.
