In brief: Hyperhidrosis

You might have a disorder of the innervation of the sweat glands that causes the excessive sweating.
It could also be a hormonal issue if you have recently started or changed birth control methods. Did this just start suddenly or has it been slowly worsening? I would talk with your Family Doctor about it.
