Really need help, excessive sweating

Hi guys... I'm fourteen years old...I'm in 9th grade and I've been having this problem since I was maybe 11 or 12. It's nearing summer now and I feel so self-conscious everyday because I feel like everyone is staring at my sweat stains underneath my armpits. I don't know if it is psychological or what... I mean, my dad sweats a lot so I guess that's why I sweat a lot (during physical exercises and labor), but I'm starting to think it's psychological because when I wear black tops, I "feel freely to sweat" because no one can see it anyways (on days when I wear other colored shirts, I sweat even more and look around the room to see if people notice). This is really starting to become a problem. I also have excessive sweating in my palms and in drama (only class they had when I came late to this school otherwise I would have never taken it, ew) when we're doing these exercises and games with other classmates, people are disgusted by my super sweaty hands. I feel so embarrassed all the time and this embarrassment just leads to more sweating. Also, forget what I mentioned about it being summer, because this is all year round and it never stops. Even during the dead of winter, I'm still sweating. I feel so weird because I look around at my friends and they never have to worry because they don't sweat! When I get to classes (walking, going up stairs) I have a sweaty face already and I'm just sweating profusely and my hair is messy and I just feel like a slob. Someone please help me. I put on deodorant after every two classes or even one. It masks the smell but I have to keep reapplying or my smell with overpower the deodorant. My mom was thinking about getting me armpit surgery, but I just don't know if I want to remove my sweat glands. I tried everything and I'm constantly thinking about what people are thinking about me, which makes me sweat even more.

Hey awkwardmofo welcome.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
