3. Night sweats are a symptom of OMICRON

Sweating may be more or less depending on how severely your body is exposed to the attack of the coronavirus. It also affects the patient’s tendency to sweat. Undoubtedly, such symptoms may be more severe in people with hyperhidrosis in general – explains Dr. Jacek Kragowski, Family Physician and Head of the Zielona Góra Convention in an interview with WP abcZdrowie.
The doctor acknowledges that heavy sweating is a symptom that has also been observed with other infections. In some patients, the pathology may be exacerbated by anxiety.
All colds are characterized by weakening the body, and therefore any effort may lead to increased sweating. Everyone knows the saying “sweat with fear”. It can be said that COVID-19 is a strong stress on our body and thus the mechanisms that cause excessive sweating start to work – noted Dr. Krajewski.
The doctor adds that if severe night sweats persist even after the infection has cleared, it is necessary to consult a doctor. It may turn out to be associated with the development of other serious diseases, such as diabetes or thyroid disorders.
