Memory concentration
My son is six years old and seems to have difficulty in concentrating with his school work. Is there any or could he use any medication at his age to help boost memory and concentration?
I would also like to know, he sweats excessively, sometimes he would play outside and it seems like someone has wet his hair the way he sweats, is it a cause for concern?

Thanking you

Excessive sweating is found in some children without an obvious cause being found for this. There is no need for concern about it. His other problem is of more concern and he may have ADD or similar problem. He should be assessed by a paediatrician about this and a clear diagnosis should be made.While you are arranging an appointment start him on Biostrath and see if he improves. Also avoid all foods and drinks with colourants and additives.
