It’s natural to sweat during the night. But if you’re waking up with excessive perspiration, so much so that you regularly wake up with soaking wet sheets, you may need additional help to manage symptoms.
Night sweats can be extremely uncomfortable and may even be related to depression or trouble sleeping.
In this blog post, we’ll explore some ways to help with night sweats and share our favourite pajamas for night sweats.
Understanding Night Sweats
Many people sweat during the night. You may sweat during the night if the temperature in the room is too hot or if your bedding is too warm.
However, if you sweat so much that your pajamas and bedding become soaking wet, even when your bedroom is cool, then it’s probably night sweats.
Both adults and children can get night sweats.
Night sweats are usually not a serious problem but they can make sleeping very uncomfortable.
For those with eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions, excessive sweat can also trigger a flare up.
What Causes Night Sweats?
There are a few different reasons why you may be experiencing night sweats. For women, one of the main reasons may be menopause or ‘hot flashes.’
Other common reasons include anxiety, low blood sugar, or other medical conditions like infections and cancer. They may also be a side effect of medication such as antidepressants, hormone treatments, and opioids.
