Is it normal to sweat more out of one armpit than the other?

    Hey guys - this is such a random strange question. Over the last few months, I've noticed that i sweat way more from my left pit than my right. I don't notice it when I'm working out. I only notice it when I'm just sitting at my desk or something.

    Is this normal? Should I see a doctor?

    Thanks for your advice!

    My right armpit sweats more. It also smells worse if I need a shower. I always assumed it's because I'm right-handed and do more work with that arm, and the muscles are more developed. Hence there's more sweat produced that's the source of more odor. But that's just a guess, and it's never concerned me.

    My right armpit does this... its annoying when I don't wear undershirts (because its too hot), but that pit becomes visibly damp. I'm left handed.

    that's so strange. I'm right handed and my left pit sweats more.

    Thanks for replies, guys.

    I know it's a weird question... glad i'm not the only one experiencing that.
