Anyone have this? My armpits do not sweat at all anymore as well as my genitals. These are 2 place where I used to sweat the most. Something has been turned off or blocked. I also notice a strange odor when I sniff my armpit. Almost like a smell of yeast im guessing?
I can’t believe nobody is looking into this, as it seems like a major clue to me!
According to the Mayo Clinic, we all have eccrine glands that cover most of our bodyand open directly onto the surface of the skin. We also have something called apocrine glands, which develop in areas like the armpits and groin. They empty into the hair follicle just before it opens on the skin surface. Stress sweat comes out of the apocrine gland, and smells way different.
A type of gland that is found in the skin, breast, eyelid, and ear. Apocrine glands in the breast secrete fat droplets into breast milk and those in the ear help form earwax. Apocrine glands in the skin and eyelid are sweat glands. Most apocrine glands in the skin are in the armpits, the groin, and the area around the nipples of the breast. Apocrine glands in the skin are scent glands, and their secretions usually have an odor. Another type of gland (eccrine gland or simple sweat gland) produces most sweat.
Apocrine glands are nonfunctional before puberty, at which time they grow and commence secretion.
