If you have swaety palms anf feet at times besides when you are playing, you most likely you are suffering from a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis, which causes a sweat gland found in the feet, hands, and armpits to be overactive. If suffered from this condition my whole life, and as a pro bassist, I was thrilled to discover that there is a relatively minor surgery to fix. Maybe you already know about this, but some others may not. I haven't had it yet but plan to in late January when I'm going to be in LA. For those of you that recommended "just relax", you are obviously unaware of how uncontrolabel this condition is, i would say my palms are sweaty about 65% of the time, regardless of whether i'm nervous active, whatever. (If i'mk nervous or excited, as playing music often is, then they are definetly that way.)Hand washing only helps for about one minute, i've also tried acupuncture to no avail. This surgergy looks like it will completely eliminate the problem. ANyway you should check out "Center for hyperhidrosis" for more info if any of you are interested. (You''l get mulitple hits on a search engine for this condition.) Good luck!
