Speaking from experience it is unlikely you have a long term medical problem given that it has only started one year ago. Speak to the doctor about the Iontopheresis treatment it sounds more appropriate. Mind you after the treatment the saliva in your mouth dries up so I would recommend some oily foods to eat.

If you put talk on your palms then leave them for ten minutes then wash them or you could try a product called klima sure foot spray
Hi am 14 years old aswell.. and have been searching for the cure for the past 3 years and am unsucessful..I cant hold anyones hands and its is soooo embarassing..I totally understand your situation girl :(
I have suffered from sweaty hands for around 2years now and it is really starting to run my life, I feel I can't shake hands with people as I get a comment, they leave marks on table's and overall it is very embarasing. Is there anything I can do ?
I am 28yrs and i believe i dont have raynauds syndrome because my hands and feet are not always cold and sweaty (only sometimes)but the thing which brings me embarrasement is that the top of my hands and feet are always red . My complexion is fair but i dont understand what is going on . Could you kindly guide me plz .
I have red feet and hands and they are really hot. I am 25 years old and it is ruining my life :-( basically they flush for no apparent reason and so many people comment and asay why are your hands so red or why are your feet so red? I went to my doctor and he constantly turned me away until I just had a breakdown. He has given me some medication which is usually for women on the menopause but it is having no effect! I really want to lead a normal life and not have to constantly have this. I cannot buy strappy shoes where it males my feet grow moew red. I go out on a date and I have to try and hide my hands over the table if they try hold my hand where a flush my have occured. They happen randomly and I am utterly sick of it. The heat given off is affecting me too please help !
I have the same problem. My hands and feet are bright red for no reason at all. Sometimes they are ice cold but still red. They stay like that about an hour or so after I get up. I don't know what is causing it but should would love to find out. It all started out about a month or so ago. I hope and pray we can find out what is going on
Im 15 and have been sweating from my hands for as long as i can remember.I really want to know if there is a simple way that will stop me from sweating at least for a whole or a couple of days? I really need help because my doctors don't take any notice of my hands sweating quite a lot of the time all they say is I'll grow out of it. This is also now becoming more annoying as I really really like my best friend who's a boy and he keeps wanting to hold my hand but I'm all sweaty so I keep saying no, this sweating is really affecting my social life right now as i am now also being taken the micky out of.
is there any home remedies that work, to stop sweaty hands?
driclor, cover your hands in talcom powder first (this'll stop stinging) and put on the driclor before bed :) Makes your hands dry, but really works!
If you go see your GP they can refer you to the Dermatology department which specialize in sweat glands. They then test your sweat glands and can stop your heads and feet etc sweating by putting them under a machine which zaps the glands. I had it down under my arm pits and asked about hands aswell my boyfriend has that problem too. I hope this helps.
Hello, I am 13 years old and I get sweaty hands... I'm not really sure what brings it on... I have had it for a good few years now and it is just really embarassing... It effects my life quite alot, i have a boyfriend but I am unable to hold his hands because of this problem... Nobody knows about this because I find it hard to talk about... I can't tell my parents because my mum died when I was 4 and my dad is hard to talk to... i really don't know what to do... please help me :(
I have the exact same problem :( Im 16 now and it is getting worse i used to be able to hold my boyfriends hand but not anymore and i hate it because i dont want him to think that i dont want to hold his hand. i feel so insecure about myself. You dont eaxctly want to tell anyone about it because its embarrasing but we have to at some point. Have you thought about telling a friend? i have told my closest friend and she didnt think it was funny or anything it helped because i had someone to talk to about it.
My 14 year old son suffers from very sweaty feet and hands since birth.It is really getting him down and the doctor has said nothing can be done .HELP
Hi Michelle, I am now 26 but I suffered with terrible sweaty hands and feet as a child which got worse during my teenage years. I got quite depressed about it and my confidence was really low so I know how your son feels. I tried roll on deodorants and then had Iontophoresis treatment which helped a little bit. In the end I had surgery (a sympathectomy)and it changed my life!! It doesn't help for sweaty feet but it completely stopped the sweating on my hands and under my arms. It is a major operation so its not something to do lightly but I can't tell you how much my life has improved since having it. I would suggest just starting with the roll on deodorants or maybe asking the GP about Iontophoresis. Hope you get some help for him. Lindsay x
I'm 15 and suffer from sweaty feet and palms..i also get very sweaty under my arm pits and stomach and back, and i understand how your son feels. However i went to the doctors and i was prescribed Pro-Banthine tablets and A roll-on deodarant. This have had a great effect and have greatly reduced my embarassing sweating. So i would say go back to your doctors and ask them, however it is possible as i was told that it's just hormones, and may just pass. Hope this helped
