    I'm sorry about that. The condition is called hyperhydrosis palmaris. It is a condition with some genetic involvement. Some kind of surgeries are being done to correct the condition. I won't be able to give you the detail here and now. I will strongly suggest you see a physician. He will evaluate and give you the available options of treatment.
