Questions about my sweating


hello everyone.

i am 20 years old and at the start of this year I started having excessive sweating out of nowhere and I just have a few questions.

firstly I only seem to sweat when I’m out either at work or with my friends. When I’m at home doing nothing I don’t sweat at all. I don’t have anxiety as I’m quite a confident person so seems a bit strange to me. Secondly, where I sweat is on my hands and my armpits but they are really hot when I sweat. When I research Hyperhidrosis it doesn’t say that these areas will feel warm so is it another condition that is causing this problem? I’m responsible healthy and just seem a bit strange that one day this just started happening to me.

i thought I’d ask on here as I went to see a dermatologist the other day for the first time and she was useless. She just prescribed me oxybutynin which I don’t really want to be taking and didn’t ask me hardly questions with a follow up appointment in 3 months.
