why does sweating cause itching

why does sweating cause itching. My son is 16 years old and when he starts to walk for a distance or lift weights and starts to perspire and the itching all over results.

Re: why does sweating cause itching

I am 16 years old 185 lbs and 6 feet 2 inches and continue to grow.
I am a high school student.

Over the last 6 weeks I have noticed that when I exercise I start to itch.

When I am playing the guitar and get hot I start to itch.

This itch is all over my arms and my chest.

What do you think is causing it. I have changed the detergent that my mother is using and it still is going on.

Re: why does sweating cause itching

It is caused by the salt in our sweat ...sweat drys quickly as it cools the body but then it starts to cause us a great deal of discomfort.
