In brief: Find cause
If you have always sweated profusely, it's a normal condition for you.
If it just started, you should see a physician and find out why. There are many possible underlying causes. Correcting the cause will correct the sweating. If there is no underlying cause, various options are available to decrease sweating; your doctor will know what they are.
