In brief: Could mean vein prob

I agree it could be harmless perspiration/moist skin.
But a few words about circ. That could be serious. Arterial blood brings o2 from heart to entire body: insufficiency to leg can cause pain, esp with activity, dry skin, red/bluish/cold skin in legs/feet (no swelling). Veins bring bld back to heart; insufficiency causes pitting edema (swelling); could be clot in leg vein. See your primary care.

In brief: See your doctor

You get wet hands when you squeeze your legs with your hands.
This is either perspiration, which is harmless, or edema which is serious. Usually though edema would be accompanied by leg swelling. It is not clear to me which of these conditions are present. Please consult your physician.
