What makes your armpit smell?
Your body is covered with sweat glands because sweating is an essential. The two main types of sweat glands are eccrine and apocrine. The eccrine gland covers your entire body. They secrete sweat directly to your skin, sweat evaporates which regulates your body temperature
The apocrine gland is not meant for regulating the body temperature. This gland is what causes your armpit to smell. Sweat itself doesn’t smell but because the sweat produced by the apocrine gland is high in protein and I later acted upon by bacteria it begins to smell.
