If Your Sweat All of the Sudden Changes, It Could Be Trying to Tell You Something
Whether you’re dripping onto your yoga mat in a hot vinyasa flow class or sweating it out on the spin bike, at Well+Good, we’re firm believers that sweat is a good thing. Case in point: We have an entire section of the website that is literally dedicated to the stuff. But while we talk a lot about the best ways to work up a sweat and how to subsequently wash it off in the locker room (thank you, feminine wipes), it’s high time we start talking about the messages that our sweat could be sending us.
First things first: All sweat is not created equal. As you likely know, some days your sweat is smellier, or saltier, or more intense than others, and that’s actually your body trying to tell you something. “Different types of sweat do mean different things,” explains Jeremy Fenton, MD, at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City, noting that there are two main types of sweat: One is from the apocrine glands and one is from the eccrine glands.
