About 1% of the entire United States population is affected by it. It’s exact causes are still debated. One thing is certain, sweating is a way for the body to regulate its temperature to keep everything going well and we need it. But it does suck to have sweaty palms.

Many experts believe sweaty palms or palmar hyperhidrosis is caused by a hyperactive sympathetic nervous system. This in turn causes the sweat glands to produce unnecessary sweat. As the human body has millions of sweat glands with half of them found in the hands, this sweat generally shows up in the hands.

Those with sever cases of sweaty palms experience it even when the body has no reason engage the cooling down mechanism. Stress and anxiety caused by this inappropriate sweating can from time to time even cause more sweating to occur.

The medical establishments tend to agree that the underlying cause of sweaty palms is physiological.
