Pediatrician 's  Response
hello, there should not be any reason to worry at present as your child is doing fine, accepting food normally and is active. some times the sweating is also there when you unknowingly overcloth the child, even when it not so cold. so as long as the child behaves normal its not a reason to worry, but keep close watch on any temperature spike as generally fever subsides with sweating as a normal physiology. thanks
