Why does my string surface feel rough?

If the string surface becomes rough, it’s often difficult for the finger to slide easily. This can have two reasons: 

  1. Sweat can corrode the string surface and make it rough. 
  2. The friction of the vibrating string on the fingerboard (by pressing and vibrating or by vibrato) can also make the string rough.
