Embarrassing problem

Does anyone else sweat excessively?
I'm not even sure I'm sweating excessively but it feels like that. I just moved a mattress & a few boxes/bits of furniture, and I'm sweating quite a lot. I don't find it physically taxing, I'm not out of breath or anything just very sweaty.

Also in hot weather just leisurely walking has me sweating a LOT. Especially in between my legs it's so mortifying sad

If it's relevant, I'm not overweight(ish). I'm 5'9, 13st 6ish and exercise frequently.

Have you always been this way or is it new?

How old is it? Could it be hormonal?

I've been like this as long as I can remember? It's particularly awful in summer and when I sweat between my legs it gives off a really strange, not very nice smell. It's so embarrassing and I'm sure it's not normal sad

I don't think excessive sweating in itself is unusual, but the weird smell would worry me. Is it possible you have an infection or thrush or anything that could be causing that? Sweat itself doesn't really smell until it gets stale.
