Sweat
I am a 49 year old male. Please help. I sweat terribly at night, when I sleep. In the morning when I wake up my pillow is damp of all the sweat. What could be the cause ?
Thanks

Dave, you might suffer from hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is excessive perspiration due to over-activity of the sweat glands. The best person to see about this would be a surgeon or a dermatologist. Good luck.
PS. If you mail me at netdoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll send you some info on hyperhidrosis.
