Brief Answer:
What is your temperature?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this sinus infection that you have. I will like to know how much prednisolone you are on. Being on it for just 6days is no major concern. We may only get concerned about this if the dose is very high. Also, report what your temperature is to me?

If your temperature is normal, then these sweats are nothing to worry about. It might be more reflective of healing and environmental temperatures. Endeavor to drink much water so as to compensate for the excess fluid losses.

I hope to hear from you....... I wish you well.
