Ultimately, if you gain weight, it means you take in more calories than your burn off. It could be that what you consider exercise is not be rigorous enough to burn fat (sweating doesn't mean you are burning fat) or that your workouts are too short to burn fat (20 minute minimum on the treadmill, for example), or maybe you eat/drink too much of the wrong things at the wrong times...etc.

Can you lose weight with exercise only?

Well, everyone has a diet. If you don't, that means you're not eating at all. But if you mean can you lose weight by only adding exercise and not changing your dietary habits, then yes, you can. To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume. If previously, you were not gaining weight, and you increase your calories burned through exercise and don't change your diet to compensate, then you will lose weight. Often, people will add exercise when they didn't previously, but still not lose weight because without noticing, they have also begun to eat more because they feel hungrier due to the exercise. By monitoring both your caloric intake and your exercise, by holding the intake constant while increasing exercise, you will lose weight.
