3 Distribution and Structure of Sweat Glands The sweat glands are considered to be exocrine glands because they secrete directly onto the skin’s surface. The human body has about three million sweat glands, the greatest density being found on the palms, soles, and forehead, and the least density on the arms, legs, and trunk (Kuno, 1956). They are totally missing on the lips and in the inner ear channel (Pinkus, 1971), on the glans penis and clitoris, on the labia minora, and on the inner surface of the prepuce (Montagna & Parakkal, 1974).

After a while, the horny cell desquamates like a withered leaf, curling up from its margin. 5–1 g of such horny material every day. At the same time, an appropriate amount of keratinocytes is replaced through cell proliferation (mitosis) of the basal epidermal cells in a kind of continuous molting. In the stratum germinativum, cells are meshed together like a zipper.

Sweat does not flow continuously through the duct to the skin surface, but rather in a pulsatile manner with pulsations of 12–21 Hz, as Nicolaidis and Sivadjian (1972) showed by applying a fast-moving humidity sensitive film. Rhythmic contractions of the myoepithelia, surrounding not only the secretory but also the ductal part of the sweat gland like a helix, are regarded as the source of the pulse (Ellis, 1968). Although an adrenergic influence on these myoepithelia has been discussed, they might be innervated cholinergically as well, since adrenergic receptors play a minor role, if any, in eccrine sweat secretion (Sect.
