Excessive sweating
Hi Cyberdoc,
Im a 14 boy who sweats a lot and i wondered if u could help.My mum says it is nerves and might only be a phase but im not so sure.I am really self concious .It has got to a stage where my palms are quite damp sometimes and i leave wet patches on the seat.My main concern is my palms and leaving marks on the seat as i don't think any girl would wanna go out with me.

Dear YounteenKyle
Ask your doctor to prescribe some Probanthine or Inderal 10mg and see if this helps you?
