Garth, assuming that you’re not overweight, don’t suffer from a thyroid problem, adhere to the accepted hygiene regimens and that you’re in good general health, you might suffer hyperhidrosis. This is basically excessive perspiration due to over activity of the sweat glands. The problem is that it is usually not limited to the neck area. It usually occurs on the palms, soles, axillae, inframammary regions, or groin. The best would be to see your doctor and have him sort it out for you. Good luck.
