Apocrine sweat glands are larger and are limited to axilla (armpits) and perianal areas in humans. Because of the substances that are contained within apocrine sweat (e.g. protein, ammonia, lipids, chromogranins) it has a more thick and milky consistency than eccrine sweat. The healthy bacteria covering your body loves to munch away on apocrine sweat, and they multiply and divide when there is apocrine sweat. As the grow, they produce a lot of waste, which is what causes body odor.
