For the first few weeks of life, babies don’t sweat much. They can get too hot but they’re not sweating an excessive amount to prevent overheating. As the baby grows older and changes in temperature become more important, he or she may start to sweat a little bit while sleeping at night. This is normal and doesn’t mean that your child has a problem with his or her body temperature.
Are there different types of hyperthermia?
Yes! There are two main categories of hyperthermia, which are: fever related (also called pyrexia) and stress-related (also known as catecholamine hypersensitivity). Fever related hyperthermia occurs when a person’s body gets too hot from one of these reasons: infection, trauma, surgery…Babies usually develop this type of high fever from infections such as mumps or pneumonia . In some cases it can happen for no apparent reason , like during pregnancy when you have an illness that lasts for several days without any symptoms changing even though your temperature stays pretty high all day long. Stress-related hyperthermia happens if a person’s heart rate goes up because our hands sting after we rub them against something scalding hot… Like touching metal outside on a cold day…or touching anything else really hot… Like the stovetop… Or if you have been exercising hard at work so you haven’t eaten enough food before getting home . It also happens due to extreme emotions such as fear , anxiety
