    I have no advice for you, but I do have the same thing. Very very sweaty all the time, I could be freezing and they would be dripping. My brother and my sister also have it. My sister went to the doctor for it once, they gave her this stuff to put on it, made her hands so dry they cracked everywhere but didn't stop any of the sweat. Else than that, as far as I am aware, there is no definate, its going to stop it treatment.
    Its called hyperhydrosis by the way.
    Its strange though, all 3 siblings have it, yet neither of my parents or anywhere else in the family has anything like it. My brother and I are lucky enough to have both hands and feet ;) (I dont wear sandals that often :p)

    I get sweaty hands when I drink too much coffee- maybe you're sensitive to caffeine or something?

    If it's really bothering you there is some special stuff you can put on your hands before you go to bed and wash off in the morning. It basically partially blocks the sweat glands. It's the same stuff people use under their arms if they have an excessive sweating problem, your GP can prescribe it.

    ^^^ you can also buy that stuff over the counter too. It whiffs a bit and I think it stings a bit the first time you use it.

    My sister had it, an absolute waste. As I said, all it did was dry her hands to the point they were cracking everywhere, with the white lines and everything, yet just as sweaty as before she started. The doctor even gave her a warning that it probably won't work :p

    No cause i dont drink caffine lol. But my mum has it so im just thinking if it is some sort of genetics thing (thinks that how you spell it lol)
    And the reason why im sending this thred is because i got a boyfriend and when we are holding hands in the cinema my hands sweat loads!!! And i mean loads! Its so embarrising :blush:

    I'm bored, here.
    There seems to be a genetic correlation with hyperhidrosis. In Dr.Reisfeld's studies, he found that 40% of his patients have some sort of genetic pattern

    I know how you feel, my man doesn't hold my hand, once i rested my hand on his knee and when he went to stand up he thought he had spilled water on his jeans... but it was just my hand :p

    i some times have clammy hands... and then next minute ice cold.. and for my feet.. i wear three pairs of socks to bed some times- i have been to the doctor- the thing is my hands shake like crazy as well. its a nervous disorder apparently

    they call it intentional tremour disorder.. i dont know how this relates to you guys but thought i would share it.

    :lol: Dont worry im always up for people that are random :yippe:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I always used to have that!! :no:

    Hands were freezing cold, along with sweatyness non-stop 24/7. It was SO annoying. And very embarrassing if people ever touched my hands... they would say something like "Uhh have you been playing with yourself or something?" :nervous:

    In the end, it just simply went.. maybe its an age thing? who knows?

    I still get freezing hands- just non sweat anymore.

    Its very embarising when people say "ewwwwwwwww you have got sweaty hands" its very childish in my eyes
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I"ve gotten used to it, now I just take it as a joke. When they say ewww, try to touch their face ;) Instead of holding hands, it seems normal and natural for the guy to hold my wrist :p
