You can get sweaty palms while or from doing a lot of things
Sweaty palms happen due to a lot of things. I'm not professing to be a doctor or give medical advice, but I can say that I get sweaty palms when I play video games. Why? Well, because it's a competitive activity, whether your playing against the computer or someone online. So what can we do to prevent sweaty palms while gaming?
All kinds of advice.
Sweaty palms is a common problem among gamers. I've seen the topic come up time and again on blogs and forums, etc... They all have pretty much the same ole solutions, solutions which a lot of us just don't find satisfactory. Things like, wash your hands before playing, or, wipe your hands on your shirt (or pants), or, wear socks on your hands, or, cut the finger tips off some gardening gloves, or, put chalk on your hands,,, etc... Thing is, we want to PREVENT sweaty palms, not inconvenience ourselves or look like a tool shed.
So what's are the acceptable solutions. We know stopping to wipe your hands off is interruptive to game play, and if you have to pause the game, that's just not right, and if you don't pause, you risk getting plinked in the head by a 3-round burst or getting your lid busted from a sick board check. Is putting something between your hands and the controller the answer? I don't think so. Things like hand gloves and controller gloves make for a bulky feel that is unintended by the manufacturer, not only that, you run the risk of looking like a complete tool if you show up to a gaming session sporting that sorta gear. Other stuff may work, like chalk or baby powder for example, but that's messy and can cake up and ruin your controller. How about something that you can rub on your hands and it disappears, preventing your hands from sweating, giving you a natural and comfortable feel for the controller???
