    Thank you for your question about this very common problem! Many people have problems with excessively sweaty hands, which is also termed “hyperhidrosis”, and it is commonly worse with anxiety, especially in social settings. 

    If anti-perspirants aren't effective in managing your sweaty hands you may wish to consider botulinum  injections - one treatment treats sweaty hands for 5-12 months. You can read more about this treatment and additional options by clicking here
