I have been plagued by generalized sweating since my mid teens and it really degrades my quality of life outside of the winter. What can be done?

Generalized sweating. All normal, healthy people sweat. Some more, some less. Sweat is important in regulating your body temperature. Despite enormous changes in the temperature of our external environment — be it tropical or sub-zero — your internal body temperature remains. Smoking, emotional tensions, certain medications can cause escessive sweating, check with your pcp or dermatologist.
