Underarm odor can be embarrassing for anyone, but if you have trouble getting rid of it, that can be even worse. There are many ways to control underarm odor, find the one that works for you. This is a guide about preventing underarm odor.
After many months of this embarrassing problem, I got the idea to try hand sanitizer. Not only did the sanitizer stop the odor immediately, after a week's use the odor has not returned.
I've tried everything for my underarm odor, to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've tried baking soda, lime, and lemon juice. This problem is very embarrassing and its starting to make me feel depressed!
Arm & Hammer Natural deodorant works well because it has triclosan in it. It's toxic, so be leary. It kills bacteria. Same thing that is in anti-bacterial soap. I would only use the Arm & Hammer on occasion to kill stubborn smells.
Hi. I suffered from armpit odor since elementary school. Just recently I finally got it controlled. I'm 31 years old. I had a regime. I would scrubbed my armpits in the shower, like 3 times. Due to old deodorant residue. Then I would put hand sanitizer. It will sting, please blow. Then hydrogen peroxide. Bacintracin. Then my arrid or degree deodorant. Then finally a splash of peeixidr over the deodorant.. it's what helped. But then it started itching due to over drying. Finally I went to the dermatologist and confessed my regime. They prescribed me Clindamycin phosphate topical solution. I'm using that now. And it's a SUCCESS! I been using it for 3 days, with my degree of Sheer Powder, OMGOSH, MY ARMPITS smell amazing! ! I can't stop sniffing myself! Thank you God! It's an emotional moment.
I'm 16 and I had a baby about a month and a half ago and ever since then my armpits stink really badly. Nothing works. I shower everyday and sometimes more than once and nothing works. I have tried using everything I possibly could. I need help.
Look it up on webmd. You might have a chemical deficiency due to your recent birth. They will be able to give you facts. PS: I do know if your scent smells like pennies, you need copper. Trace minerals keep us going so if you need some, webmd.com will tell you. Good luck!!
Try antibacterial hand soap on underarms for 2 weeks
I have discovered the best kept secret for eliminating underarm odor. It is organic virgin coconut oil. I cook with it as well because it is very nutritious. I have always needed a strong anti-perspirant, but no more. And coconut oil doesn't stain your clothing. I am amazed. It is also anti-fungal, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. I order mine online because it is much cheaper that way.
Underarm sweat only smells because of the bacteria that grows there. If you use an antibacterial soap (I use one called Safeguard), you won't need to apply deodorant as well.
I've tried a lot of anti-perspirant, deodorants, alum/deodorant crystal, and natural remedies like lemon and baking soda, but it seems like they all don't help prevent my underarm odor. What should I do? I am so confused. I am using vinegar and it works for me as of now. But are there any other products or ways I should use or try? Thank you.
Perhaps research the cause of strong body odour? For instance, some people love to eat garlic and the aroma oozes out of their pores.
I shower everyday and use deodorant, but the odor is still there. What should I do to remove the odor? Please help me.
Try a mens brand deodorant, it works better than womans.
It's a stubborn yeast infection. I had the same problem, in both armpits and in the pubic hair. I am pretty sure I got it from having sex with a person who had the same problem, I never had it before.
A dermatologist confirmed that it is yeast, but his medicine never did work very well. But I did find a solution. Just go to the drugstore, no prescription required. Buy a tube of Miconzaole Nitrate vaginal cream (women use this for yeast infections), and a tube of Neosporin (the store brand is Triple Antibiotic, and this works fine, as well). Squeeze out a one inch ribbon of each one and mix them together. Spread on the smelly area. You will find that the odor goes away quickly. Use it twice a day for a week or so. You should have a good period of no smell. I do find that I need to repeat the treatment occasionally.
I don't sweat so much, but the little armpit sweat that comes into contact with my clothes in the armpit area makes them smell so bad. Even when there is no odor in the armpit area, the armpit side of my clothes still smells. I do have armpit odor sometimes and rotten burps too. I'm able to control armpit odor, but the scent coming off my clothes smells pungent. Any help is appreciated. I have been to dermatologists but no help! I tried antiperspirants too.

Try rubbing hand sanitizer in your armpits on a daily basis. It works.
You could have trimethylaminuria. The rotten burps is a tip off.
I hope someone can help me. I have a 6 year old daughter who has recently started to have a bad underarm odor. What can I do? I have thought about using a deodorant but I am afraid she is too young?
By maggie4 from Montgomery, IL
I would call or take her to her pediatrician. Six seems awful young to be having underarm odor.
She probaly had started using it before you knew that will start them to be musty before time
Underarm odor (aka Bromhidrosis and Erythrasma) is caused by a bacteria that adheres to your hair follicles and skin and when the (odorless) sweat comes into contact with the bacteria on your armpits, the odor begins! Ewww!
