Hi,
This condition is called hyperhydrosis,you do not worry it is common condition.
more sweating keeps your skin smooth,minute holes in the skin remains open so certain unwanted toxic materials excreted through perspiration and your kidney has to work less.
Only precaution you have to take is to take more salt with lemon juice to prevent low sodium level.
Take plenty of water.
Apply good talcum powder and use deodorant frequently to mask the smell.
ok and bye.
