There are medication: There are medications for exccessive sweating but you need to know their side effects and if they are ok to take with your other medications and medical problems.

Sensitive sweat glan: The sweat glands are controlled by your autonomic nervous system in which high adrenaline state causes you to sweat..Emotionally induced sweating typically involves palms/soles/axilla areas. Your sweat glands maybe a bit sensitive to Adrenalin than usual, thus when anxious you sweat more. Prescription drysol may help. www.drionic.com for home treatment options. Hope this helps. Good luck.
