Humans have two main types of sweat glands: eccrine and apocrine glands. Eccrine glands are found all over the body and produce a clear, odorless sweat primarily composed of water and salts. These glands are crucial for thermoregulation. Apocrine glands, on the other hand, are located in specific areas like the armpits and groin and secrete a thicker, milky sweat that, when broken down by skin bacteria, can produce body odor. Apocrine sweat is often associated with emotional stress and hormonal changes.
