Excessive Armpit SweatingSweat glands are part of the body's normal cooling mechanism and the human skin contains many sweat glands, which increase production of sweat in response to the body's need for cooling. Certain areas of the body contain an increased number of sweat glands. These areas include the underarms, groin and perineal areas.
The regulation and control of sweat is done through the Sympathetic Nervous System, which is an independent and Automatic Nervous System. It functions without the ability of self-control. In other words, we sweat automatically according to heat and various emotional stressors, and we have no control over whether we do or do not sweat.
There are two types of sweat glands: Apocrine glands and Eccrine glands. The Eccrine glands are the sweat glands responsible for excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis). The Apocrine glands that produce the "typical" personal odor, sometimes referred to as scent glands, play a role in Bromhidrosis.
