Excessive sweating of a toddler while at sleep. And cold to touch, starting from his head down to back. What's the real problem?

Sweating at night: Children's heads have a large surface area and they sweat to dissipate heat. If he is an active sleeper and wears a one-piece sleeper, is covered with a blanket, he may be sweating from the heat generated by his moving around. His head would have the most sweat then. If he is completely normal otherwise, it is not a problem. Double check that with your pediatrician next time you see him/her. ...Read more

Excessive sweating of the face and head. I have underactive thyroid and kidney disease. What could cause this sweating only on my face and head?

Hormone excess?: Face and head sweating is more common in women that are taking hormones.

Check hormone levels and consult with your nephrologist or endocrinologist.

My 2yo sweats excessively (head/back) after running around & when he falls asleep. His head is literally soaked. Any cause for concern?

Not necessarily: The head of a kid that age is a relatively large part of their body surface area and an easy portal to discard heat/sweat after running around. If the kid is robust, engaging in vigorous play, feeding well and growing normally I would have little concern. If he has only brief active periods followed by prolonged rest, I would want him evaluated. ...Read more

What besides thyroid can cause light head fluttering in chest hot an cold sweats an excess tiredness? I'm on Med for low tsh.

Thyroid function will change depending on the dose and effectiveness of the medication and the course of the underlying thryoid disease.

My throat is sore and starting to swell, my nose is running, and I'm sweating. Could I have a cold?

Yes: A cold is a very distinct possibility. I have found that for myself as soon as I would start to experience any symptoms of a cold, I would take 2000 mg of vitamin c with rose hips and then 1000 mg every hour for the rest of the day. I greatly diminished the symptoms and was often gone the second day. I rarely get colds any more. ...Read more

Try a antiperspirant: It might sound strange to use an antiperspirant anywhere but under the arms, but it can be used on hands, feet, other places that sweat a lot! You may just have to try different brands at the store until you find one that doesn't have an odor or leave any noticeable residue. Mitchum makes an unscented antiperspirant cream that some people have used successfully! Good luck! ...Read more

I have been using voxamin. Seazed using it since 4 months. Facing irregular beat excess perspiration and tingling in head. Should I be checked seroton?

Luvox/ fluxoxamine: Serotonin syndrome is not the issue, but if you had a seizure on it, and are on other meds, you need your doctor to have you evaluated by a neurologist, you need a Luvox (fluvoxamine) blood level to see if it is too high, your psychiatrist should check for interactions with other bipolar meds (and I hope you are on at least one anticonvulsant mood stabilizer), and a test for cyp3a4, cyp1a2, cyp 2c19, cyp 2d6. The symptoms that you have are from Luvox (fluvoxamine) toxicity according to a monograph that I read. It recommended that you contact your doctor immediately should any of those symptoms occur. ...Read more

I've been getting fever and sweats, runny nose for 2 days, should I wait another day before seeing the doctor?

Probably not: If you have a headache and neck stiffness with your other symptoms, you need to see a doctor. If you are coughing and feeling achy all over, you might have the flu in which case you need to be seen if you are getting worse. Otherwise, having these symptoms for only 2 days, it's probably not time yet. Rest, drink fluids, stay home. ...Read more
