Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You have hyperhidrosis of your palms which means increased sweating. There are many causes which stimulate sympathetic nervous system which causes increased sweating. Firstly, get your Thyroid hormone level checked to rule out Hyperthyroidism. Certain drugs can also cause this as well as hormone disorders. It is best to find any underlying cause for this probelm and treat that first. Consult your Doctor and get a thorough checkup done first. There are many anti-perspirants with aluminium chloride which can stop sweating for few hours but will not cure it. Also Iontophoresis using mild current will help in some cases. Surgical method will cure it called Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) for which you will need to consult a Neurosurgeon.
