incrediably sweaty 4 yo - is this something to worry about?

ds 4yo is very sweaty. 30 mins in softplay and he looks like he has been standing under a shower. His hair is drenched and his top is very damp. It's also usually dripping down his face.

It doesn't bother him - but he is the only child I know who sweats. As a baby he used to get sweaty feet but it is getting worse and worse.

Dp very sweaty but didn't start until puberty.

Don't know anyone else who has had this - is it something I should check out with the gp?

ds (also 4) is very sweaty .. always has been, even when a baby. After 30 minutes at soft play he would be bright red in the face, sweaty face, damp hair etc. Even after running around the garden at nursery at play time! I just figure that is the way he is and dread when he starts getting smelly with it!

thanks for that. Feels better to know ds isn't only one.
