DH is on antidepressants. A Med Change is NOT an option ( finding the right cocktail for a bipolar partner was a struggle and he is doing AWESOME) He has putrid night sweats. They are so bad he has a layer of moisture on his body - ok he feels SLIMY!! he says "Michelle - it pools in my ears and runs out!" His body feels like its on fire.
DH normal hygiene routine is only so-so so that doesn't help. He showers every other day as do I - but he is more oily.
Sometimes I can convince him we need to use 2 blankets - one for me and one for him but his feelings get hurt because he likes to be close. I usually will snuggle him but tuck the covers between us so I can get a layer between us.
I dont know what to do. The most I can wash our bedding is once a week.
Our room gets a funk - Our nanny gets our daughter out of our room everymorning -

DH : Fur mamma to 2 pugs and 1 grey kitty - its a zoo around here! Feb 2013..Will you help feed our new blessing?
After that, I would suggest a quick pre-bedtime shower and then a dusting with powder (maybe cornstarch or baking soda mixed with an essential oil if either of you wants that too). I used to have terrible night sweats from night terrors, I kept a shaker of cornstarch and lavender in my room. I would powder up before changing my shirt.
He should mention it to his Dr. to see if there is anything else they can do. A friend of mine is in the same situation (but is a woman). Her dr. is considering a hormone imbalance caused by the meds. Don't know if that would apply to men though.
Otherwise, I think he's just going to have to start showering more! Once a day maybe, right before bed?
