See below: You can try aluminum chloride, over the counter 10% strength or the 20% from your doctor. Apply and wrap hands in Saran wrap while sleeping. Oral medications can be tried such as non-selective beta blockers, Clonidine and others. Severe cases can be treated with botox. Many options. Your family doctor should be able to handle this.
