My kids sweat plenty in this hot heat, but they don't smell afterward. I on the other hand need all kinds of deodorant. Why doesn't kid sweat smell?
There are two types of sweat glands: (1) eccrine sweat glands and (2) apocrine sweat glands.
So it's not really the sweat that smells, it's the action of bacteria on apocrine sweat that becomes prevalent after puberty.
Some people sweats more than others. The quantity of secretion vary with individuals. The components of sweat remains same for all individuals and all ages.Its the microbial accumulation that gives smell to the sweat. Salivary secretion, with millions of microbes do also smell. I think there is no age bar for the sweat to smell. Some kids do have very bad smell for their sweat
