The condition you describe sounds like hyperhydrosis.
Hyperhidrosis may be primary (no identifiable cause) or secondary (the direct result of another medical condition).
If you visit your family doctor, he or she will be able to determine if it is primary or secondary and suggest a treatment. The majority of cases of hyperhydrosis are primary and respond well to Botox injections.
