Pediatrician, Cardiology 's  Response
If there is no fever, then antibiotic is of no use in sweating. This excessive sweating may be temporary. In cases of hyperhydrosis this excessive sweating may persist. But it will be too early to label him as a case of hyperhydrosis. So I would suggest you to consult your doc to know the reason of prescribing antibiotic and to rule out any cardiac or thyroid abnormality(as some of these cases may have this presentation although it seems unlikely)

Pediatrician Dr. Kaushik K Murthy's  Response
good morning, if the child is active and playing well with a good appetite and a peaceful sleep , do not worry. keep a temperature check on him every 5 to 6 hrs once. if at u find he has fever , u ll have to review with ur doctor. go ahead with the antibiotics prescribed by ur doctor. if the sweating continues along with fever , get him tested for malaria and typhoid. if the symptoms stops with the ongoing treatment , do not worry.
