What to do about excessive head sweating in children

There are many reasons for children to sweat. Healthy children are active, and it is normal for them to sweat a lot on their heads and even all over their bodies after playing, especially when the temperature is high. In infants and young children, excessive sweating during nighttime sleep is associated with a fast basal metabolic rate.
However, some infants and children may also have reduced or even no hair on the head and occipital area, sudden awakening at night or even crying and screaming, which is mostly due to vitamin D or calcium deficiency, and need to go to the hospital to check the trace elements and timely supplementation of vitamin D and calcium.
