Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Excessive sweating is common and has multiple causes Poor hygiene tight clothing and climate issue sshould be considered first. After that , hormonal work up, medications history will sort out other etiologies. Need thorough work up to rule out hyperhidrosis and its cause.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
