I'm too embarassed to have this problem of sweating in the palms and soles. Someone has suggested me a surgery. Is it adviceable to go through one? Please let me know your suggestions if any. Its really embarrasing to shake hands. People think i'm nervous from the beginning which in not true at all. Hence would like to end this deficiency.

We have the same problem... I've undergone few treatments when I was a kid but it seems that it has expired. There are numerous procedures for this according to my research and the specialists I've talked with. One is surgery of the parasympathetic glands -- which may stop the sweating but would result to not so good effects to other body systems. There are also medications such as botox, which I haven't heard about yet. There are also atopical creams and solutions that may be applied to the hands and feet like aluminum chloride, which is somehow effective but should be perpetually applied. Also, a pharmacist friend of mine had told me that anxiety levels worsens the condition... so we start being embarassed or feels conscious about our sweaty hands or feet, the thought stimulates the sweat glands to produce more sweat... This suggests that mind over matter works! I'm actually looking for home or herbal remedies to try for my palmar/plantar hyperhydrosis.
