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.
