The causes of sweating aside, i.e. I'm not interested in which and how nerve signals are transmitted to sweat glands. But I would like to read a detailed account on what a sweat gland consists of, what it does when not sweating, but esp. what happens when a sweat nerve signal arrives. Is there a good free review or can you give one?

Go to the International Hyperhidrosis Society's website www.SweatHelp.org and look in the Know Sweat section. If you don't find what you want there, ask their top docs: Dee Anna Glaser, MD at St Louis University; or David Pariser, MD at Eastern Virginia Medical School. –  user1652 Nov 12 '12 at 15:26
