My 2.5 yr. old sweats profusely when she goes to sleep.
She doesn't seemed to be bothered by it. I was wondeirng if this is normal or an
indication of a different problem. anyone have a simillar experience with their
My son, who's now 4 1/2, regularly sweats profusely while
napping and/or sleeping. For example, his hair will get
completely soaked, and often his clothes will be pretty wet
with sweat as well. My daughter, who's now 1 1/2, also
sweats through her head sometimes and her hair will be
soaked when she wakes up. I just chalk it up to their high
I cant help with any reasons, but my 2 year old son also sweats
a lot in his sleep. His head specially, is almost drenched in
sweat by the time he wakes up. He sleeps without a blanket, but
it appears almost as if the warmth of the mattress and nearby
pillow is enough to make him sweat. Dont know what this
indicates and would be interested to find out!
This is an odd question. I'm a single mom and have been dating
a wonderful man recently. He's kind, compassionate, generous,
fun, sexy, sweet... the whole package. We've gradually become
more initimate and I've discovered that he sweats extremely
excessively when lovemaking, so much so that it feels like
standing under a waterfall. I find this unpleasant and a bit of
a turn-off. I have never seen anything like it in my life; the
amount of sweat that pours off of him is truly astounding and
might be funny if it weren't so bothersome. Does anyone relate
to this situation? Any advice?
you have me laughing, I used to date this fellow! well, ok,
yours is a different one as my ex is in a relationship in San
Luis. He was (is?) an excessive sweater. The ''rain'' was
bothersome to the point of distraction and often I just wanted
sex to be over so I could dry off! I never addressed the issue
directly with him, but my suspicion was he was trying REALLY hard
not to ejaculate before I was ready and so was working himself up
quite a bit before release. If I was more ''ready'' before he
entered, and therefore he was too, then he would feel comfortable
releasing sooner and then there was not as much sweating. So you
might try encouraging/validating him to release sooner?

''It's simple. She should be on top.''
anonymous, of course
I know all too well the unpleasantness that you are referring
to. My first husband had the same problem. We talked about it
(that was the hard part) since I too found it rather
We tried several options
He would shower before we became intimate. This seemed to help
a bit, but did not eliminate the problem.
He bought some contraption he saw in a magazine that was
supposed to ''kill'' the sweat glands. He ended up burning
himself with this doo-hickie and I made him throw it away.
And finally...he lost weight. He was a big guy. Over 6'5'' tall
and just shedding some extra pounds did the trick. He only lost
15-pounds but it made all the difference. He seemed much
Another tip: try different positions to avoid the ''waterfall''.
Yes, my husband does this too--it's like being under a faucet
sometimes. It helps to be on top for me--less dripped on.
Drysol (a prescription antiperspirant) could help but he's not
someone I could suggest that to (he won't wear the OTC ones
either as he doesn't believe in them, which I do understand).
And he's so wonderful in so many other ways, I figure it's a
little thing in the grand scheme. And of course I've gotten to
drip breastmilk on him but it's really not the same. I say if
he's wonderful in other ways, wait and see if you can get it to
not bother you over time.

Hi - I noted that most of the respondents to your question
assumed sweating had to do with being overweight. My experience
has been quite the opposite. I had a fling with an endurance
athelete some years back, and he sweated quite a bit during sex.
He was definitely not overweight!! In fact, he had the best body
I've ever experienced in that way. ) Our fling did not evolve
into a full-blown relationship, so we never really discussed it,
but I now realize I came to think of the sweating as sexy. You
know - hot, steamy sex. So now if my husband sweats a little
during sex, I think it's erotic. Not everything in life was
meant to be antiseptic and sterile. Perhaps you could change how
you think about it!
