Thanks for the query. You seem to be having a condition called hyperhidrosis. On evaluation, a cause can be found on few occasions and that can be helpful to treat you. Many a times when the cause is knot known , empirical treatments are offered like the ones you are doing. Iontophoresis and botulinum toxins are other treatment options with independent merits and demerits. Discuss about oral medications also with your doctor.
Next Steps
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
