Q.

Sweaty Boy

Hi

My son is 4 1/2 yrs old and quite healthy. I have noticed these past few weeks that he is sweating quite a lot on his nose and upper lip. I know it has been hot but I havent seen him sweat like this before. he also never complains about being hot. Should I worry about it?

This is probably normal and due to the recent very hot weather. You can check his temperature just to be sure that he does not have a fever.
