Some doctors also believe that not sleeping in woolen clothes at night, because it causes the blood vessels in the body to shrink. Sleeping wearing them makes the body warm, but due to the body’s heat not being able to come out, restlessness starts. Apart from this, there may be a problem of BP and anxiety.
Apart from this, its effect can also be seen on the skin. According to skin experts, some people may also be allergic to wool. Its symptoms are itching problem, skin rash, irritated eyes, runny nose and cough. If you also have such a problem, then get it checked once if you are not having these problems with your wool.
This problem can be caused not only by sweaters but also by sleeping wearing socks and gloves. Because sweat comes in winter like summer, but in winter they are not known and due to lack of air to the body, they do not dry up. The sweat and the heat of the sweater block the pores of the body, which increases the risk of infection on the body. Due to these infections, patches also fall on the body.
According to experts, diabetes and heart patients should take special care of these things as compared to common people. Wearing a sweater in winter and sleeping inside a quilt and blanket increases the body temperature, and increasing the body temperature is not good for diabetics and heart patients.

Moisturize before wearing warm clothes. The most important thing is to consult your doctor in case of any kind of problem.
