It sounds like you have a condition called hyperhidrosis. I will attach a simple webpage describing the usual causes of hyperhidrosis.
What you were reading about in the article is one type of this problem, called primary hyperhidrosis. This can be congenital, as it runs in families
or acquired through unknown means. This is considered a neurological condition. In the familiar form, the excessive sweating tends to run in
very specific patterns, like only the palms and soles of the feet, etc. In the neurologically acquired form, it comes from damage to one or a group of
nerves, causing excessive neuronal activity to the sympathetic system which regulates blood vessels, and ultimately sweating because as the blood vessels
dialate, they stimulate the sweat glands and cause the sweating to result. This problem and the genetic problem can be treated with neuromuscular blocking agents
like BOTOX, which when injected into the small nerves around sweat glands, disrupt the ability of the sweat gland to dump sweat excessively.
