My son is 10 years old and has never shed a tear in his life. Instead, he gets a very mottled appearance around his eyes. When I asked the doctor about it, he said "his eyes appear to be moist now, so we don't need to do anything about it until they start feeling like they are dry and or irritated". That has not yet happened.
When he plays outside or exercises, he also gets a very mottled appearance, and he over heats. I was never overly concerned about that until the last couple of days when I realized he is not sweating at all.
After I came to this realization, I started talking to him and he confirms that he never sweats! When he gets hot like that he runs water over his head to try and help him cool down! I intended to call his doctor tomorrow but, I was wondering what could be causing this and if it could be affecting other glands in his body! Thanks for any input in advance! --Sheri
