Here are six of the most common causes of sweaty palms:
1. NERVOUS, ANXIOUS, AND STRESSFUL SITUATIONS
Caused by an adrenaline rush, sweaty hands occur as part of your body's fight or flight response that is activated when you sense a threat.
2. EXCESSIVELY HOT ENVIRONMENTS
3. POOR DIET
A number of foods and drinks can promote excessively sweaty palms, including:
- Spicy foods
This stimulates your sweat glands, including those on your palms, and causes them to release sweat.
5. HORMONE IMBALANCES
These are some of the common conditions that cause hormone imbalances and in turn, excessively sweaty palms:
- Thyroid disorder
- Diabetes mellitus
- Prostate cancer
6. AN UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITION
Palmar hyperhidrosis often runs in families, and it can go on to negatively affect your personal and professional life.
If you suspect you have palmar hyperhidrosis, consult a qualified professional for an accurate assessment.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
