Hands Getting Sticky/Sweaty When Playing Games?

I know this is silly, but it's really starting to get to me. I don't know why but my hands just get extremely sweaty and sticky around my palm area when playing games, I don't seem to grab my mouse too tight so I don't see how I could really be getting sweaty there, my rooms isn't that hot, and nor are my mouse and keyboard.

I wash my hand regularly, I'm not eating chocolate with chocolate all over my fingers and playing either xD. I'm not sure how the hell to stop getting sweaty hands.
I wash down my keyboard with a wet cloth regularly and same goes for my mouse.

Any tips? Lol

    But that's not an option ;-;.
    Maybe my room is just too warm, my computer makes a lot of heat, and it's on the desk right next to me so that might be the issue.

    I just want to play games in peace! ;-;

    most of the time its likely "excitement" sweat, adrenaline and endorphins in your system all that nice stuff faster heart rate

    a couple of things you can do:
    have a cold damp cloth handy, and make it a habit to regularly wipe your hands
    have a ventilator fan blow at a low setting at your "sweaty" parts, (for me its my armpits hardcore when in good games)
    and if its really extreme you can use an antiperspirant on your hand/hands(slight warning antiperspirants should mostly only be used if its real intense sweating, and it doesnt actually "stop" sweat, it mostly just redirect it to other areas of teh body. i.e. block of 1 area for sweat and another will sweat doubly hard :D )
  5. There are mice with built in fans/vent grills that might help you.
  6. Get an air cooled mouse. (yes it actually exists)

  7. Anti-perspirants actually do clog up sweat glands, that is how they work. Deodorants are an anti-bacterial (usually aluminum based) that temporarily kill off the smell producing bacteria.

    The body's response to having blocked sweat glands is to increase sweat production in other areas, so that part is more or less correct.

    they might "clog" up sweat, but exactly because it only redirects sweating to another area is what i meant by, and why i said doesnt "stop" sweat,
    since by redirecting you could not be sweating in your "behind", and using antiperspirant in the place you do, would now suddenly make you sweat from your "behind", i.e doesnt stop sweat (even tho it might clog the glands in the particular area used, and thats not permanent either from creames, sprays, powder)
  9. It depends on how you define redirecting...Not like the body has a sweat plumbing system to move the sweat around. But I believe I covered that in the second sentence.

    Hmm, I'll try out a fan, thanks for the tips dude. :D

    That's actually really cool, but I don't think I need something to that extent.
