Sweat? What's the relation? Does inside your mouth "sweat"? IMMSMR, secretion of sweat glands is sweat.
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

haha... Really cool. Well, the sweat glands are called that because they produce sweat. Salivary glands are called that because they produce saliva :wink:

Of course. It is not something special with your age. Everyone make mistakes. We are only human. :)

But, I've just known that in order to dry the saliva in your mouth, your body needs hormone.. :shock: ..named Angiostencyn.

Really? Angiotencyn II has many effects, but i didn't know about this one. I don't understand what you are saying exactly: when you have saliva in your mouth the hormone is needed so that the saliva can evaporate? I really don't get it
