Unlikely: Sweating is a natural body function and has no direct effect on whether an infant would acquire such an infection. A baby of this age should not be swaddled to begin with, for sleep or otherwise. Babies can strangle themselves in such a set up.

My infant is sweating during feeding, can this be a sign of pulmonary hypertension?

My infant is sweating during feeding, can this be a sign of pulmonary hypertension?

Possibly: Could be pulmonary hypertension. It could also be from a respiratory problem, heart problem, or in fact (and hopefully) nothing at all. I strongly recommend you take your child to see the pediatrician as soon as reasonably possible (not an emergency, but during day hours).

My infant 9 m old head most of the time sweats while sleeping in night. Is it normal? What r the possible reasons

Sweaty infant: Many babies are over bundled due to fear of the child getting cold. This can cause overheating and increase the risk of SIDS. Your infant should wear the same amount of clothes as you. Monitor baby carefully for blue and cold fingers and toes. Don't use too many blankets. Here's a good hand-out: http://www. Nih. Gov/news/health/nov2010/nichd-02.htm (If that doesn't solve it, see your pediatrician).

If you can keep: Him stable (not somnolent, not uncontrollable fever, no seizure activity etc) then see the family or pediatrician doctor in the morning. Keep his fluids hydrated and keep stimulating him to make sure he responds to you appropriately.

Thyroid: Thyrotoxicosis may be one reason for feeling unusually hot and sweaty in cold weather. Other symptoms are palpitations, diarrhea, fast heart beat etc. A simple blood test should be able to diagnose this condition. In the meanwhile, take precautions against dehydration.

Where's the best place to measure body temperature? I have excessive sweating and my armpits are cold so when I measure my temp then it shows low temp

Adult: The best temp is from oral temp in adult, unless you are looking for minute changes, then rectal temp is most accurate. This is used for basal body temp variations for ovulation.

My baby is 3 months old, will be four months on Friday. She is cold, clammy and sweating excessively. Is this normal or should I take her to the ER?

My baby is 3 months old, will be four months on Friday. She is cold, clammy and sweating excessively. Is this normal or should I take her to the ER?

Hard to say: You don't give much to go on. A sweaty clammy baby may just be overdressed. Other issues? Change in feeding pattern, lethargy? disinterest in play? Excessive sleepiness? If the kid has been normal all day & this is all, it may be nothing. If your "mommy" sense is tingling and you think there is something wrong, take her in, you won't sleep if you don't.

41 male hairy body. Itching & discomfort on upper back especially after hot water, bath, sweating, cold temperature. Relief after itching no marks seen.

Assuming no rash: Itching can be caused by dry skin, which hot water bathing makes worse. Turn down the temperature, moisturize daily, and if persists, see a dermatologist.

My face color turns to yellow and I start sweating alot but not because of the high temprature because my hands feels cold and my body is cold!!!

See doctor: Turning yellow is possibly a sign of liver disease. Please see a doctor as soon as possible to have blood tests done to make sure your liver is normal. As far as your hands and feet being cold when you are hot this happens in some people. Make sure you are drinking enough water, at least 2 liters per day and even more if you are in a hot environment. Avoid caffeine and alcohol.

See doctor: He needs to see a doctor asap. If you do not have a doctor who can see you right away, go to the er. There are so many possibilities: infection, food poisoning, flu, appendicitis. He needs complete evaluation and exam.
