The Body Of A 2 Year Old Feels Cold But Sweats?
Hello doctor …. I have a very active son. He is currently 2 years old. He likes to run and climb. But when he sweats his body feels cold. Is this normal … ?? Thanks for the explanation
Thank you for the question.
Sweat is produced more when the body's metabolism increases, for example when you have exhausted a lot of physical activity, after eating, after exercising, or taking certain medications. Can also, excessive sweating if you experience certain diseases, for example viral or bacterial infections, malignancies, hyperthyroidism, and so on. The purpose of sweating is primarily to release body heat while removing toxic metabolic waste.
When the body is wet from excessive sweating, it is very natural for the body to feel cold. This is the same as a body that is wet when exposed to water, it will feel cold. This does not always indicate an illness. Provided that your child does not experience other complaints, such as weakness, pale, fever, nausea, vomiting, fussing, and so on, this condition does not need you to worry too much. You need to be vigilant and see your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician if your child sweats excessively for no apparent reason, or if other complaints appear more severe as previously mentioned. In this case, your child's body may feel cold and excessive sweating due to anemia, hypotension, hypoglycemia, heart problems, or various other diseases.
Hope this helps ...
