Ask your question

  • I would see a doctor and if it’s just excessive sweat glands (hyperhydrosis), then it becomes more of a how to deal with it issue, rather than something to worry about.



  • It was interesting reading the comments to this!



  • I have seen that botox works small needles into the hands but as your son is so young they probably wont do anything



  • Did this issue get resolved?



  • Hope you managed to find the answer you were looking for.



  • How are they going now?



  • Talk with your doctor if your worried



  • Check with your community health clinic and ask them



  • I would also seek advice from a medical doctor.



  • Just like MISSMANIC said- Thanks heaps ! Wondering this myself too.



  • I’m sure he is OK but got to the GP for advice .Good luck



  • Thanks heaps ! Wondering this myself.



  • I would talk to your gp or child health nurse. Also I would have sure he didn’t have anything on his feet as this heats you as put him in cotton clothes



  • To be on the safe side take him to the doctor



  • Both my kids sweated a LOT as babies, just on their heads, mostly when they were feeding or sleeping. They grew out of it way before the age of 3 though. If you’re really worried I’d ask your doctor about it.
