Please relax. What you are facing is a normal phenomenon.

You tend to sweat when you are in crowded places like church, in apprehensive situations like amidst people. This should not put you down.

It occurs due to sympathetic stimulation.

Please relax your mind. You can try good deodorants and anti-perspirants that suit you.

Sympathectomy is a surgical procedure, which you can undergo to come out of the problem completely.

Hope this helps you.
