Hey people,

I don't have serious issues with my hands, but when I get nervous they start to sweat, sometimes there dry and sometime there wet

I try to wash my hands a lot to dry them up, is there anything yall know that I can put on my hands to make them dry so I can start holding hands with girls more often?

its called hyperhydrosis, excessive sweating i have it and it sucks.
i went to the doctor and you can get botox injections to stop the sweating, i'm getting it done in my armpits.
also the doctor said you could put your hands/feet whatever in tea

Talcum powder? I dunno, there is some powder which will impede it.

I sweat easily myself no one ever minds, the secret is if your trying to make a first impression wipe your hands before shaking etc. on something, when you already are "holding hands" no one ever minds. Its a mental thing, if your going to make a big deal about it it is going to be a big deal.

It's hyperhidrosis. Try using Drysol a few times a week before you go to bed. You have to get a prescription to get it so you will have to go to the doctor. However, I believe it is available on amazon for like $20. You should also try the inophorosis (spelled it wrong?)machine. It sends electrical currents into your hands through water pans. It works pretty well for me. I use both Drysol and the machine and it is the best combo I've tried so far. I've tried oral medication and certain dri, but they didn't work for me. Hope this helps. Also, research it online. There is lots of information online about this condition and how to deal with it. Good luck!

Ok here's the deal I never had sweaty hands before and then I took Prozac for like a month and after that I always had sweaty hands, even if I never took prozac again, and it only kind of stopped something like 5-10 years after that!

Actually it wasn't Prozac it was Celexa / Citalopram, now that I think about it, although they are similar I don't know if Prozac can cause the problem with sweaty hands as well.

Put tissues or w/e in your pocket and casually put your hands in your pockets when they sweat

Don't put your hands in your pockets.

Don't think about it.

Other than that, bugger all you can do buddy.
