Summertime! : I'm not sure what the temp was In Philly today, but we hit 95 degrees and heat advisory in Kentucky. The heat combined with the humidity triggers our bodies to sweat which helps cool the skin and this cool our core body temperature. This experience sounds like " normal sweating" to me. If you have night sweats combined with weight loss, see your physician!
