Why are my armpits dripping sweat when i'm not hot?

when i sit around unclothed, often my armpits will just start pouring sweat - like enough for actual drops to roll down my arms/side. i feel like i'm at a comfortable temperature.
i am not a sweaty person by default. when i exercise or have sex i'm only ever covered in a sort of misted dew, never actual drops or accumulation. the only corresponding physical sensation is that my feet feel cool, but when i touch them they don't actually feel cold (as in, if i sit here and concentrate on my feet, the seem chilly, but to the touch they're just as warm as my knees and shoulders). if i put on socks, the problem gets better (i sweat less) but doesn't go away.
this happens a few times a week.
if it matters, i'm female, 28, curvy and soft (5'10, 190lbs, 36d-38dd)
