This sounds like an infection. You should go back to the doctor and have it looked at. Sweat would not irritate the incision like that and a foul odor and pain are indictions of infection.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with impending burst abdomen. You would need re-evaluation.
I would suggest you to consult your surgeon to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
