There are two main types: eccrine sweat glands (involving areas like eyelids) and apocrine glands (for odor). Eccrine sweat gland activity increases during heat stress; apocrine gland activity increases with infection or inflammation; both increase when sweating occurs at night. The more you train, work out, play sports, run around town without protection from the sun’s raysand/or eat foods high in fatthe more you will experience this excessive sweating! Little kids don’t experience it because they have small bodies that generate less heat than adults do.
