In brief: See your doctor
There are good treatments for hyperhidrosis (sweating too much).
First, make sure you are not on a medicine that contributes - some anti-depressants commonly cause this. Before stopping them, however, discuss it with your doctor. Injecting Botox can be extremely helpful. Also there is a chemical called drysol that can be applied before bed and works great as well.
