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

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

I have episodes of excessive sweating during normal walking and running that resolve during rest. Causes?

Otherwise, a Dr. Should evaluate. ...Read more

Is sweating necessary for losing weight while doing exercise? I do all seat up, spot running, stretching. But my belly doesn't sweat.

Is sweating necessary for losing weight while doing exercise? I do all seat up, spot running, stretching. But my belly doesn't sweat.

Not that way: Losing weight is a measure of calories in vs calories out. As long as you burn more than you put in you should lose weight. When burning fat it is burned from everywhere so there are no specific exercises to burn fat from a specific area but you can tone and strengthen specific areas. ...Read more

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

I had surgery friday, today I have been dizzy a chills & sweats. I am not running a fever. When should I check my temp. When I m chills & sweats?

I had surgery friday, today I have been dizzy a chills & sweats. I am not running a fever. When should I check my temp. When I m chills & sweats?

Good idea: I hear this from many patients after a variety of abdominal operations under general anesthesia. Seems to be self limiting, and may be due to the anesthesia and stress of surgery or some combination. If your running a fever, or even feel something is "not right", call your surgeon to find out for sure. Could also be a sign of infection. They'll take the call. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

I feel pain in shin after running?

I feel pain in shin after running?

Overuse injury...: Sounds like shin splints. You need to reduce intensity and distance to 50-60% levels. Run on flat and forgiving surfaces. You might want to evaluate your shoes and their ware. Application of ice, heat, stretching can all afford some degree of relief, but over use is the problem and reduction of activity is the answer. ...Read more
