Sweat itself is not unpleasant, it is nearly odorless. When the sweat comes in contact with bacteria, it produces characteristic sharp smell that makes sweating uncomfortable and awkward for the affected person and for others. Amount of the sweat produced is equally important. The problem arises when it is excessive and uncontrollable.
