Why do my hands and feet sweat excessively?

Prince asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi Chris,

My name is Prince. I try and listen in on your shows on Talk Radio 702 whenever I possible can. I learn a lot!

I am a 25 year old male. I sweat excessively on my hands ands feet (be it cold or hot) and as a result I feel very uncomfortable shaking hands with people. I did a small research on the internet and came across an article on Hyperhidrosis.

No one I know of in the family who has a similar symptom.

I would like to know if this can be treated and what medical specialist I would need to see for a diagnosis.

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards,

Prince

What do you think?

Are you sweating all the time?  Or only in certain social situations?

Personally, I think that shaking hands is over-used in our society.  And, does carry risk of disease transmission which would outweigh social comfort.
