Excessively Sweating Palms
After looking around the net, I believe I'm suffering from hyperhidrosis. For hours and hours, the palm of my hands and the soles of my feet will sweat excessively.

The floor downstairs in my house are smooth marble tiles and if I'm not careful, I can slip on my own sweat, pouring from the soles of my feet.

Hindering my work as an artist are my sweating palms. It's difficult to grip my pencils as it slides within my hand, and I need to readjust several times due to the pencil sliding out of control.

I'm aware of three methods in handling this problem, which are surgery, some sort of electrical device to stop the sweating for 6 weeks and botox.
I was wondering if there're anything that's much more cheaper and easily accessable, like from a pharmacy or groceries?
