Children Aged 14 Months Often Sweat During The Day And Night?
Good night … my child is 14 months but often during the day I sweat almost all of his body except for the legs that aren’t … but the weather here is pretty hot … how is it normal ?? … Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically babies and children have a higher metabolism than adults. This metabolic process will produce body heat, and to help release body heat, sweat will come out. Sweat will certainly come out more and more if indeed you live in an area where the air temperature is high (hot places). The following are some things you can do:
Use air conditioner if the room in your house feels very hot
Use clothing that is thin from material that absorbs sweat for your child
Do not put clothes in layers for children (just one layer only)
Make sure the child drinks enough when sweating very much so as not to cause dehydration or lack of fluids
If you see other signs or symptoms in your child (such as a child having a fever or other signs of infection in the child), the child's growth is not going well (monitor weight gain and length), consult your pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
