I agree with you that this degree of sweating that you are describing is quite excessive, and you should get it checked out by your primary care doctor
to see what might be going on.
The first thing your doctor will probably want to do is rule out a problem with thyroid gland, as this is a common cause of excessive sweating. Other symptoms of a thyroid problem might include weight loss
, heart palpitations, or changes in your skin or hair. Thyroid problems can be ruled out with some simple blood tests.
If your thyroid is normal, then your excessive sweating is probably due to a condition known as hyperhydrosis, which is a condition in which, for genetic reasons, you are predisposed to excessive sweating. This condition can be controlled in various ways. For example, there are prescription strength topical antiperspirants that work by "clogging up" the sweat pores and thereby reducing sweat output. Additionally, sometimes oral medications to "dry up" the sweat production can be used. In more severe cases, referral to a dermatologist
to consider other treatments, such as injections of botox, can also be considered.
