I sweat a lot. Is it because of puberty?


Growth uses a lot of energy, which in turn gives off a good bit of heat. To keep your body cool, you sweat and as the moisture evaporates, it carries some of the heat off with it. This is also why, if you live in cooler climates, you will see teenagers running around lightly dressed when everyone else is bundled up.
