Night sweats, also called nocturnal hyperhidrosis, can be a very uncomfortable experience for men. Waking up in the wee hours feeling excessively hot and drenched in sweat, or chilled from the sweat that is beginning to dry, can be disturbing to your sleep, especially if you have to get up to change your nightclothes or bedding. Men and women get night sweats for many of the same reasons -- sleeping in a room that's too hot, medication side effects and hormonal imbalances. The good news is that, according to MayoClinic.com, night sweats in men "typically aren't a sign of a medical problem."
Keep your bedroom cool when sleeping by
using a fan or leaving a window open.
Use a Cooling Pad for your Pillow or Mattress to keep your body cool
Avoid bundling up before bed even if you feel cool.
Sleep in light, breathable clothing and choose bedding made to keep the body cool. The International Hyperhidrosis website recommends bedding made of a polyester material that wicks moisture away from the body. Avoid flannel sheets or any fabric that is dense and heavy.
