Why Is The Baby Sweating On The Head?
why do babies sweat on the head under any circumstances?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Babies have thinner skin that contains more sweat glands compared to adults. Not only that, babies are also relatively more sensitive to changes in temperature in the environment, so it will be easier to sweat in hot environments, and also easier to shiver in cold environments. These factors can make babies appear to sweat more than adults.
In general, sweat production in infants can be observed in various parts of the body. It's just that there are certain areas of the body that are inhabited by more sweat glands, for example on the forehead, head, palms and legs, back, and parts of the body folds, so you can observe your baby sweating more and more clearly in these areas.
If your baby's body temperature is still normal (between 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius), you really don't need to worry even if your baby looks excessive sweating. Just give him comfortable clothes, made from soft, absorb sweat, and condition the environment where he lives so it is not too hot or stuffy.
However, if you measure your baby's body temperature to rise more than normal, and this condition lasts up to 3 days or more, you should be more vigilant and have your baby consulted directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it is followed up well ... Frequently, fever in infants caused by viral infections, bacterial infections, inflammation, heart problems, thyroid gland disorders, or also malignancy.
I hope this helps.
