Hi ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Sweat in many people have different so if your smell is like honey & you don't have any problem other than smell its fine.In hot season you should drink more water than you regularly have.So drink lots of water;if required you can take electrolytes powder to compensate loss of salt .Hope once you increase intake of water the smell will reduce or even go away.
