Q.

Sweaty all the time

Good day

My 3 year is constantly sweaty. We live in a very hot and dry climate and anything she does she sweats(bear in mind she is very active). So her hair is constanly wet and ichy.... The ichiness is a bit of a concern as she is constanly scratching, is there anything that can be done to lessen her sweatiness?

Regards

Paediatrician

There is no particular treatment for excessive sweatinesss in a child of your daughter's age.The question is: Is this simply due to the hot climate in your area or is there possibly a medical reason? Please ask your paediatrician to see her just to be on the safe side.
