How to stop rust under grips?

I have a stainless Redhawk .44. The frame under the grips is slightly pitted from rust. I take the grips off and clean under them a coupple times a year (the gun only sees the light of day a coupple times a year). Each time, there is new rust.

Is it possible that the wood soaked up enough hand sweat salt to have a "salt wood" effect? Should new grips be in my future or is there something I can do to stop the rust?
