Why does my son break out in head sweats?


Posted by Katiesmine

My son is 15 and started breaking out in head sweats for no apparent reason this past school year. He now has his first job as a cashier and is having the same problem. I feel it is aniexity but he says he is not worked up. It just starts happening and then he gets upset. The sweat rolls off and his hair gets soaked. I had bloodwork done a few months ago and it showed all levels were good. Please advise who I should see.

Head sweats on their own are not usually indicative of anxiety so in the absence of other symptoms I think you first need to consider alternative possibilities. I'm not sure of what you should look for. Your son's doctor is better placed to make such decisions.

Best wishes
