Wear a sweat band on your arm and change your strings are the only two options i see
#4
there might be some spray you can use to clean them up. other then that, either stop sweating or change ur straings

Glad u asked the question. The best way to stop ur strings frm rusting is to apply petroleum jelly on them, all around it not just on the part u can c. The strings l take 4ever to rust that way.

As EC said Ernie Ball does take forever to rust but also since a lotta the moisture comes offa ur fingers onto the strings its best to make sure u take a cotton cloth and wipe the strings after every single session whether u touch the strings for a second or a whole day ...it slows down the rusting...plus if u see even a bit of rust hold down the clo between ur thumb and index nail...and try scratchin the rust off

Pretty much it...Petroleum Jelly? does that work? as in..Vaseline right? but wont that make the strings all slippery especially on say the low E, A and D? Cuz the vaseline would get trapped in the little ridges of the nickel winding?

Play with a fan pointed at you. This may not be possible in all situations, but certainly when you're just practicing at home.
