Sudoriferous gland.


The sweat glands or sudoriferous glands are small tubular subcutaneous structures that discharge sweat through pores in the skin.

There are two types of sweat glands: eccrine and apocrine.

Eccrine sweat glands are more abundant, are found all over the body, and open directly onto the skin surface.

Apocrine sweat glands are found in areas abundant in hair follicles, and open into the hair follicle just before it reaches the skin surface.
