Hallo Tracey
The hypothalamus controls body temperature but excessive sweating is often caused by infections (like TB), hormonal imbalances (like thyroid problems or diabetes), certain medications, hyperhidrosis or stress. See http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/is-your-excessive-sweating-caused-by-a-medical-problem?page=2
Rather see your doctor for an examination to see if the cause of the sweating can be identified
