Brief Answer:
Different conditions causing night sweating.

Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
There are several conditions that cause night sweating they may be:
*Infectious disease like tuberculosis or HIV.
*certain cancers such non hodgkin lymphoma or hodgkin lymphoma.
*certain medications such advil, aspirin, Paracetamol, antidepressants etc.
