Whenever I start writing something, my palms start sweating unnecessarily, and slowly and steadily my paper, on which I'm writing, becomes wet. It happens occasionally, like 3-4 days continuously in a month. And I also consume very less salt as my mother is a patient of High BP, so she add very nominal salt in food.

Sweating is your body's mechanism to cool itself. Your nervous system automatically triggers your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. Sweating also normally occurs, especially on your palms, when you're nervous.
In hyperhidrosis the nerves responsible for triggering your sweat glands become overactive and call for more perspiration even when it's not needed. With stress or nervousness, the problem becomes even worse.
Choose clothing to suit your activity.Generally, wear natural fabrics, such as cotton, wool and silk, which allow your skin to breathe. When you exercise, you might prefer fabrics designed to wick moisture away from your skin.
Try relaxation techniques. Consider relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation and biofeedback. These can help you learn to control the stress that triggers sweating.
Bathe daily. Regular bathing helps keep the number of bacteria on your skin in check. Dry yourself thoroughly, especially between the toes and under the arms.
Once any underlying medical conditions have been addressed or ruled out, your treatment will depend on the severity of the problem. Sometimes you may need to try a combination of treatments. And even if your sweating improves after treatment, you may later experience a recurrence and need ongoing therapy.
