    Sweating is a function of the human body to help regulate body temperature. Evaporation of sweat from the skin surface has a cooling effect. Some people can sweat excessively. Sweaty areas of the body are more likely to develop fungal skin infections. There are treatments for excessive sweating, such as clinical strength anti-perspirants. If his symptoms are not well controlled, he should see his GP for further treatment options.
