A member asked:

7 week old baby sweating on the forehead. hef face looks red. no fever. she is restless even while sleeping, she moves her head from side to side. cause for concern?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Hard to say: Infants have relatively more head surface area than adults and will dissipate any heat excess through their head/scalp to maintain normal body temperature, This could be normal. If this is paired with poor feeding and activity it could be a sign of a heart condition. An exam would help sort this out.
