Why am I sweating more than usual ?

I shower twice a day, and try my upmost to keep my general hygine in check. However, within the mins of leaving my home, I begin to smell. I am a 16 year old male, and I have not eat very healthily up till the past few days. Yet I dont put on weight, is it possible that I could be exhausting sweat, instead of gaining weight?

Hi Andrew ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Sweat has smell when it is concentrated meaning there is loss of salt & the water intake of the person is less.So the first thing is to replace the amount of water lost ;drink water more than you normally drink .Since the sweat is excess also along with water you take electrolytes to balance the loss of salts.Along with bathing you should concentrate on water intake & things will surely improve.
