Hallo Kiki
Abnormal sweating can be caused by some medical conditions like infections (TB, kidney infections), hormonal problems (menopause), and cancers, so if this is a new problem, rather let your doctor first exclude other causes. If he thinks it is due to hyperhydrosis you can try Perspirex antiperspirant or tablets like Probanthine/Tryptanol.
