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.
Once any underlying medical conditions have been addressed or ruled out, your treatment will depend on the severity of the problem. 
Consult Pediatrician for further advice...
