So.. a thing i've noticed, is my body temperature will increase when i am playing guitar. Around 15 - 30 minutes into my session, i will heat up and get kinda sweaty (Not disgustingly wet like i would if i took a run haha!)

Does this happen to other people too? or am i just a weirdo?
Why does it happen? it is slightly annoying honestly!

Oh, if i play in front of an audience, i tend to get a bit nervous and and sweaty that way, but this is pretty logical to me, so thats not it.

What im talking about happens.. when im alone practicing a new piece, or playing something i already know. Exhausting metal shredding or calm classical, it does not matter.

Can't say that happens to me, but everyone is different... I would not let it annoy me though :)

The annoying thing is my finger tips getting sweaty/greasy too, and it kinda destroys my strings in no time. =/ (Not so much my hands, small edit)

i also tried some coated strings, i cant say i notice much of a difference..
if anyone have a brand to recommend, i'd love to try, i use 0.10 atm, but i wanna downsize to 0.9..

I think the real important thing is to wipe the strings after you finished playing. I don't use it as I have really dry strings, my last set lasted over a year :O . I saw that some people use this, so I would give it a go

Adrenalin raises the heart rate. You are also mentally stimulated in a band environment especially on stage, not to mention lighting. I sweat like crazy. Yes always wipe your instrument down before putting back into the case.

does this mean you have to follow some kind of Ogino method to find out the optimal recording time ??
