Palmar Hyperhidrosis (Sweaty Palms) is the WORST!

Author: Korey Johnson

i have palmar hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms), and it sucks.

im a senior in high school, and i just cant get a girlfriend. shaking hands sucks terribly.

the sweat is constant all day and the only time i get some relief is before i go to bed.

All of my friends have noticed it. saying things like “eeew, your hands are soo clammy” or “your hands are gross.”

I have noticed 2 things that worsed my hyperhidrosis, and that is coffee, and marijuana, so i suggest everyone with this condition steer clear from those two things.

It’s a real downer that there is no cure for this disease. i went to the doctor asking him what i can do about this condition, and he had NOTHING for me other than submerging my hands under hot water for 15 minutes.

just by doing that, it has only went away for maybe 45 minutes.

i have been suffering from this disease since the 6th grade, and there hasnt been a day which i have had any relief. though i have heard about Odaban…so check that out ppl 🙂

I really hope i can find a girlfriend with the same condition as me. hyperhidrosis has killed my life.

Hi Korey, thank you for sharing your sweaty palms story. I have a few pieces of advice for you.

1. Sounds like you want a girlfriend. Check out excessive sweating and dating.

2. Also sounds like social situations are bothering you. Check out anxiety and sweating and also the Teens Sweating section.

3. Your doctor’s wrong. There are plenty of things you can try. Check out iontophoresis, ghetto drionics (another cost effective treatment for excessive sweating), and drysol.

Since your doctor didn’t know about these things, he’s clearly not very experienced in treating palmar hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms). Ask him for a referral to a specialist.
