I have this sweaty palm problem and its so embarrassing. Whenever we have to practice this dance at my school the boys say my hands are sweaty and I get embarrassed. So please help me, I'm in desperate need of help. Even if you know what causes sweaty palms that would help a lot, also. And if you know any ways I could fix this with household items then that would be great.
I'm sorry to hear about your sweaty palms problem. It may be a medical condition called "hyperhidrosis" and if that's the case, you really need to see a doctor. My cousin had surgery for this and he had sweaty palms and feet (the bottom of his feet). I found some sites that tell about "hyperhidrosis". You may not have that at all, but it never hurts to check it out with a medical doctor. (04/22/2005)

This is something you are born with, hyperhydrosis is what it is called. The anticipation of hand contact makes it even worse, as you probably already know. Locate a doctor specializing in this and make an appointment. There is surgery available. I think it is live with it or do something about it.
Good luck. (04/23/2005)
I use to have the same problem when I was younger, now I am 23 and I don't have sweaty palms anymore. I think it might have something to do with nerves, so try and relax and hopefully it will help. You can try putting baby powder on your hands also, I heard that is suppose to work. (04/23/2005)
Rub your palms with an antiperspirant/deodorant and see if that helps. I have heard that it works. (04/23/2005)
A company called Drionics has an effective and low cost way to solve this. (09/02/2006)
Robinul 1 mg 3 times a day is what I take for sweaty hands. You can get a surgery called a endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy ( I'm not sure if I spelled that correctly), but it costs about 10,000 dollars and I don't have the money for that.
If the doctor just looks at you as if you are crazy when you ask for Robinul be prepared with research on this drug printed out with you. Robinul has been prescribed for this problem for about forty years. The only side affect that I suffer from taking it is if I take too many at once, my sweaty hands go away, but I sometimes get a little dry mouth. If that's worth it to you I would encourage you to try it. (p.s. I wish that I had had this medication in high school, it might have made it a little more bearable for me) Good luck. (06/13/2007)
I've dealt with cold sweaty hands for the past 20 years. The only sure-fire method I've found is using a prescription antiperspirant called Drysol. Once you get the prescription, it's very inexpensive and absolutely works. After using it for a few weeks your hands might get too dry. But honestly, I prefer overly dry to cold and clammy any day. Try it. It really helps. Good luck. (04/07/2008)
Hey, I just found something that works pretty well. I just dust a sprinkling of baby powder on my palms and it dries it right up. Some of my friends used to make fun of me for my sweaty hands. One would even make me feel horrible by refusing to touch my hands. Now they all think my hands are soft and smell powder fresh. I think they have mini bottles of baby powder at regular stores.

I have had sweaty palms since I was a teenager. I love to get my nails done, but I always dread going because I know I am going to sweat on the nail technician doing my nails. I try to over compensate by giving the tech a 40% tip because I feel bad for him/her to have to touch my sweaty hands. My doctor told me to buy over the counter Certain Dri and put it on before bed. After doing this consistently for a week I can tell a difference. I am not 100% sweat free, but I am a lot better than I was before I started using Certain Dri. (08/07/2008)
Sweaty palms often occur in moments of anxiety or stress, but if you're experiencing constant sweatiness then it could be a sign of an overactive thyroid. Responsible for how quickly the body burns energy, the thyroid can sometimes go into overdrive causing your metabolism to speed up.
