Excessive sweating

I have a one year old baby who was born with Gastroschesis - but this does not affect him at all. He has a problem with constipation, but they have done a barium klisma and couldn' t find anything wrong. They have also tested for Porfiria - negative. He has a lot of problems with his sinuses and as a result from that, middle ear infection and Tonsilitis. My husband and I as well as my two elder boys also suffer from our sinuses as a reslut from allergies. They are now under the treatment of a homeopath, although my baby still get sick a lot. He' s also using a homeopathic medicine for the constipation. This is all the history.
The problem is that he sweats a lot and the sweat smells foul. His body always feel clammy, especially his extremeties and he taste salty. He does not drink a lot of water...could this be the problem or might there be a underlying disease that could be the culprit or could any of the above information leads to the excessive sweating. Just for you information...I also sweat a lot, but just in my armpits, but it' s like water, not foul smelling.
Thank you

You are correct, there is certainly a condition that must be tested for in your baby which is called cystic fibrosis.This must be tested for by a paediatrician and not by a homeopath.The test should be done as soon as possible.
