toilet sweat

Sounds gross......our toilet tank is sweating. It has caused some damage to the drywall behind it as well as on the side. Is this due to the temperature of the water vs the room temp. like on windows or is there something wrong with our puke green 70's ceramic commode. Would like to hold off on replacing it if possible, and not sure if it would make difference. Suggestions?
thanks in advance,

gregoryk,

You've guessed part of the reason. The incoming water is cold and room humudity is condending on the tank. I believe there is an insulation kit you can get for your tank. Another option is connecting to your hot water supply and running warm watmer water in the tank. Go for the insulation for the tank. Ours used to do the same thing before we got central air a few years back.
Also make sure the flooring is not too damaged.
