Clammy hands & Feet?
I just feel so bad that of all the traits he could have gotten from me, he got this...
My four year old son is exhibiting this too and in our case it is due to hyperhidrosis. I also have hyperhidrosis that affects my hands and feet. I'm just sad that he has to deal with this too. I was hoping with all my heart that this difficult, herditary affliction would skip him. But it appears to be starting already. Do any other moms out there want to swap notes about their experiences with this and their kids? I was a in my teenage years when I started experiencing hyperhidrosis and I'm just hoping my son can enjoy most all of the "normal" kid things without too much trouble or embarrasment. I would love to hear from some moms who are dealing with this too! Thanks! :)
Do you allow your baby to be in the sun for short periods of time? 10-15 min? From a complete stranger I got this, which I thought was a bit of complete quackery, but I tend to consider alternative points of view and I filed it away... They said to that a baby with sweaty feet needs to be in the sun more to gain vitamin D and the clammy feet will not be as clammy. How or why that is I don't know..
