Q.

Heat

My son is 4 years old and has a sweating problem, he sweats a lot and that it is cold I have to dress him warm clothes. He becomes wet and I have to change his vest and underwear. I just want to know could this be a serious condition or will it go away? when he sweats his skin becomes slippery and change to a greyish color.

Paediatrician

This is not all that unusual in active children of this age who may still have a rather immature control over their sweating systems. Do not heat his bedroom and wherever possible let him wear only cotton clothes. If this problem continues it may be best to ask your paediatrician to see him
