16 Body Odor: Where Does Smell Come From?
(Sweat itself is odorless until bacteria grow in it.) Bacteria are the cause of odor.

17 Why do Teenagers Sweat More?
When puberty hits, the sweat glands become more active and the chemical composition of the sweat changes, causing a stronger smell.

Shower daily Use a mild soap Focus on face (especially fingernails), hands, feet, underarms, private areas.
