Perspiring is one of the ways your body regulates its internal temperature. If you didn’t perspire, you would experience hyperthermia — or overheating — and could suffer life-threatening shock. In humans, sweat comes from two different kinds of glands — apocrine and eccrine glands. Eccrine glands are scattered all over your body, opening directly onto your skin’s surface. Clustered around hair follicles, apocrine glands are found mostly in your groin area and armpits. When activated, apocrine sweat glands release a liquid that is odorless by itself. However. when it interacts with bacteria living on your skin, it develops an unpleasant odor.
