Hi Anonymous,

Sticky skin can sometimes be associated with hyperhydrosis, which can cause an excessive amount of sweat. It can occur anywhere on the body but primarily on the palm of the hands, armpit, and soles of the feet. You can read more about it here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/hyperhidrosis/definition

but please encourage your boy friend to see a dermatologist for a diagnosis and proper treatment for his condition. 

Best of luck,
