Welcome to icliniq.com.
A blood pressure of 120/80 is definitely very high for a child of 4 years and 6 months.
There are various causes for increased blood pressure at this age like renal parenchymal disease, COA (coarctation of the aorta), renal artery stenosis, endocrine causes like hyperthyroidism, Cushing’s endocrine syndrome, pheochromocytoma, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, and hyperaldosteronism.
Since there is a history of sweating, chances of hyperthyroidism are high. I suggest you to get the child examined by a pediatrician so that appropriate tests can be advised.
Based on the reports, drugs for hypertension needs to be started.
