Sweat is a normal body response that occurs to maintain normal body temperature, and is the effect of the activation of several systems in the body, such as the autonomic nervous system and the hormonal system. Therefore, an increase in sweat production can occur under normal conditions, for example at hot ambient temperatures, when on the move, when an increase in adrenaline, such as conditions of fear, anxiety, or shock.
Likewise, anxiety is an expression of normal human emotions, when faced with a problem or undesirable thing. This condition is important so that we can be aware of the dangers and take anticipatory actions and steps that can be needed. However, in some cases, excessive anxiety (ie anxiety about things that normally do not cause anxiety) can cause interference, both physical disorders (palpitations, sweating, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and digestive disorders) and psychological disorders to cause an illness.
Therefore, if in your case the thing that often causes excessive sweat production is feelings of anxiety, then the right treatment is to resolve the cause. Some things you can do are:
You need to assess objectively whether these memories are important to think over and over again (so that they can be avoided later on), or are the past where you have already taken lessons in them and do not need to be remembered constantly.
Take a deep breath and regulate breathing and emotions. Tell these things to those closest to you, such as parents, siblings, friends, or people you trust. However, if this happens often, and you feel you cannot control your feelings anxiety, or your symptoms of sweating have started to interfere with your daily activities and rest, I suggest not to hesitate to consult a psychologist or psychiatrist, because early treatment generally gives better results, and anxiety that is left untreated can cause anxiety disorders overall, depression, panic disorder, etc.
On the other hand, if the sweat you feel is always excessive and is not related to your physical activity, temperature or anxiety, consult a dermatologist. You can also read other articles about hyperhidrosis.
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
