3 year old sweating badly

hi all iv got a bit of a quiere recently i noticed my 3 year old been sweating really bad that i can see the sweat dripping off his face and he feels wet under his clothes i dont have my heating on during the night because of his asthma so he aint hot of the heat in my house, i also dont dress him over dressed for him to sweat like this most of the time he will just wear a thin short sleeved top to bed cause he gets so hot, today isnt to warm were i am and he only had a thin top on with a pair of jeans and yet again the sweat is pouring of his face and his nose as if some one has sprayed water on him, does n e one have n e ideas as to wat this can be , he has never had cases of sweatin like this before, and he is not over weight, any suggestions would be helpfull

Hi There

Sorry to hear about the little one. Is he taking any medication of any kind? Does he seem well in himself, apart from the sweating? I think it would be worth you having a chat with the GP or health visitor.

Hope you get it sorted soon.



Is he on steroid tablets at all or singulair ??

I find steroids are vile for making people sweat, not just me but other people I know do too !!

Singulair when I tried it made me sweat far far to much but I was taken off it due to a different issue with it causing an allergy !!


hiya all to who replyed yes he is on singulair he been taking them for about a month now and just started a new pack for this month , yeah he is fine in him self no cold or flu to say the sweating is down to that, he`s constantly thirsty but that also is stated in singulair leftlet that it can be a side affect to the singulair but thats no prob to me it was just the sweating i was just a bit conserned with,


Ask his Dr about the singulair - it could be that - but I can only tell u from my experience so please ask his dr's !!
