You CAN botox your palms, but I think you should get a $4 prescription for Drysol instead.  I have hyperhydrosis in my armpits (TMI, you’re welcome) and this stuff does the trick.  You put it on at night and within a couple days you should  notice a big difference.  Ask your doctor- you don’t have to live with this.

I agree that you should talk to your doctor and see what they recommend for you. 1-3% of Americans suffer with hyperhydrosis. You’re not the only one!

I have this problem too…especially in other areas (which I will keep to myself as it is tmi!! haha!) but I am also very worried about the sweat on the wedding day.  For me, my nightmare is having sweat spots on my dress.

I will be getting botox in the armpit area for sure, and will be using power in other areas.

Good luck!

I have the same exact problem. For me, it’s because of my rapid heart beat. Lucikly, people know about it and I always preface any hand-contact with,”I’m clammy.” For wedding purposes, I’m sure people will understand, with nerves and all. I just find a way to inject humor into the situaton.

LOL!  I’m only laughing because I have the same problem and was SO nervous about my palms being disgustingly sweaty at the wedding.  (They’re sweating now, thinking about it lol.) Anyway, I was so caught up with everything else during the wedding that my hands didn’t even get sweaty (or at least I don’t remember them being overly gross.) I think people will understand too, you’ll be holding your flowers, touching other ppl’s hands, etc.  I know that I don’t notice if someone has clammy hands when I shake them, and they probably don’t think about my clammy hands either.  But, for a quick fix, try putting baby powder on your hands, that has worked for me in the past.

I have had this problem my whole life as well. Unfortuantely, I also passed down this terrible gene to my 19 month old boys. Sweaty hands and feet… I used to carry around a powder bag(not sure that’s what they’re called) that are used for playing pool. It is really small and fit in my purse. Whenever I knew I was about to have to shake someones hand or something, I would discretely pull the bag out and pat my hands on it. It worked great, but not a solution for the wedding though.
