Do strings just last for very short ... 

I switched from ej27 to ej45 thinking that would make a difference but my strings are not lasting me more than 7 days. They become very rubbery and corroded in just a span of 7 days and I don't have sweaty hands. I don't remember them lasting this short just a few months ago during the winters

Likely a bad batch. I once opened a pack of D Addario with special sealed plastic bag…all corroded. I assume there was moisture that was sealed into the bag or something, and then the were shelved for years before I got them.
