Hi Sebastian,

I have the exact same problem only I got it a little later than you, Im 25 now. I noticed it really started becoming a problem when I worked at a fish market and my hands were in water all day. The odd thing was it seemed like it went in cycles. One day my hands would prune almost instantly, other days they would be normal and take an hour or two to prune up.

I also have sweaty hands, as well as feet and am seriously considering getting this minor surgery that clamps the nerve that causes this. The clamping allows you to undo it if any problems arise. My hands make me uncomfortable sometimes in social situations. I figure people get stuff done all the time, why can't I for something legit right? Anyway

Hi Sebastian,

I don't have an answer that will solve your problem. I just wanted to let you know that I experience the issues as you do, to the same degree. If water comes into contact with either my hands or my feet just for a few seconds they will prune. I'm 25 year old female and avoid many public situations especially any water activities. No swimming, no visits to the beach and definitely no jacuzzis.

When I was 19 I had the surgery they provide for hyperhidrosis and it only made matter worse. Not only do my hands and feet still sweat, my entire body now does.  Life has become unbearable.

Cha Cha says it is due to dehydration or humidity. Try drinking a couple more glasses of water a day.
