DD has had cold sweats over the last day or two, basically no temp or even slightly under normal but quite sweaty and clammy and not just when sleeping. She has a little bit of a cough but other than that she's ok.

Advice please.

A low temp can be a sign of an infection in a young child.

How is she otherwise? If she looks ill and feels ill she probably is ill then she needs to see a doctor.

If she seems OK, but the sweats do not settle, then I would still take her to your GP for a full blood count.

She had some running nappies but that is ok now.....
