From what I have read, zinc supplementation usually doesn't help reduce excessive sweating unless one already has a zinc deficiency. However, the zinc supplementation will help prevent a zinc deficiency since zinc can be lost from sweating:

Sweat iron and zinc losses during 2 hours of exercise represented 3% and 1% of the RDA for iron and 9% and 8% of the RDA for zinc for men and women, respectively.

Sweat iron and zinc losses during prolonged exercise.

A popular over-the-counter treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is the topical application of aluminum chloride. (Of course, in addition to medication, other things like anxiety can contribute to excessive sweating.)
