What to do about sweaty hands

I'm new to climbing (and to this forum).

I'm know this has been discussed many times already (I searched the forums) but haven't gotten a solid solution to my problem.

I have extremely sweaty palms, arm pits, and feet. The feet isn't so bad, I just spray air fresheners into my rock shoes when I'm done (still smells though haha) climbing. My armpits will typically DRIP sweat and will run down to my elbows, but again it isn't so bad because I just wipe it on my shirt. The problem is my hands, for obvious reasons.

I've tried liquid chalk. But after the very first bouldering problem at the gym OR outdoors, my palms are sweaty.

My problem is... I don't have medical insurance of any kind, so I can't see a doctor without money.

I have very little money. I don't have a home phone, cell phone, no internet (I'm using my work's internet), no cable, or even a car (my 1987 Subaru GL 3dr hatchback was stolen... recently... best car I've ever owned Frown)

So now that you understand my poor financial situation. What can I do about my sweaty palms??
