Kouthar, it sounds like you might be suffering from hyperhidrosis or bromhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is excessive perspiration due to overactivity of the sweat glands. Bromhidrosis is a condition in which there is a fetid odour of the skin caused by decomposition of the sweat and cellular debris by bacteria and yeasts. The best person to see about this would be a surgeon. Good luck.
PS If you mail me at netdoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll send you some info on hyperhidrosis.
