If it were internal, he would have other symptoms, such as vomiting , fever, etc.

No idea
Many skin conditions could cause problems.
We can not diagnose like that on the site.
He needs an exam.
Excess sweating is called hyperhydrosis.
Greasy skin is often hormonal, or a form of acne.
Eczema can do it.
