I'm still new to all this and I find that just about every thread I read I find new things I didn't even realize were connected. I'm saying, "Wow, me too!" quite a lot.
I have had the hardest time finding a deodorant/antiperspirant that will even work. I finally caved and paid $10 for the clinical strength stuff and it seems to do the job.
My husband got me a pair of these fingerless gloves to wear while I'm at work to keep my hands warm while I type.

I agree that the sweating is ANS, but the cold hands are Raynaulds (which a lot of us have so probably ANS connection).

Chiming in a little late, but wanted to say that I too have always sweated an extraordinary amount on my core (underarms and back), but at the same time can have cold hands. But, at least I used to, frequently have the extreme sweating without the cold hands. For a while my hands seemed like they were one of the places all my body heat escaped, I used to never have cold hands. Now they are ice cubes!

In the day, I will have sweaty underarms, although not necessarily what I would consider a wildly unusual amount -- it only seems unusual given my hands are ice cold at the same time. If I were a naturally warm person (like my boyfriend, for example) I wouldn't think my sweating at all unusual. But, considering my teeth are often chattering and I can't move my hands half the time, yet I'm STILL sweating under my arms, yes, that seems strange to me.
I just shower frequently, and change my shirt in the middle of the day. Since I know this happens, I can plan ahead, and if I know I have a meeting coming up or something, I keep a fresh shirt handy in my car. And I ALWAYS have gloves on. I have several pairs of gloves with just the tips of the fingers cut off, and they are a godsend. I also use those disposable hand-warmers that are made for skiing. I use them in july when I'm sitting outside, but hey, whatever works, right?
