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 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.

I recently started using a homemade one as well and am amazed at how well it works. Mine uses coconut oil as a base, but also has a bit of baking soda, arrowroot, and a few drops of essential oil (optional of course). I found the recipe online by googling it but can't remember where. Basically you mix all the ingredients together with a rubber spatula or similar, and put it in a jar of some kind. Makes it more like a cream deodorant, without all the chemicals. I keep a tiny cosmetics spatula (purchased from a Sally Beauty Supply) in the jar so I won't have to dig in with my finger and get it under my nails.

The best price I have found ever on coconut oil, was a huge jar of it, at a local international store, for under $20! If you have one nearby it is worth a look-the first jar I had was maybe 8 or 10 ounces and I got it at a health store... for only about $3 less than the huge jar, which is about 54 ounces...big difference.

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.

Read up on anti bacterial soaps. They are being over used and encouraging the germs to become stronger. Regular soap and deodorant is the better way to go.

I realise that you might not want to use a soap containing triclosan, but Wright's Traditional Soap has Tea Tree Oil as its active ingredient - provided that you are not allergic to tea tree oil, this should be acceptable. Some also question the chemicals used in many deodorants.

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!

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.

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!

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!!

I shower everyday and use deodorant, but the odor is still there. What should I do to remove the odor? Please help me.

I found if I drink a lot of water it clears up. The things that will cause odor is under arm deodorant and medication as well as tight clothing. You need to sweat and drink a lot of water to flush out the things that cause the odor. Good luck and God bless you.

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'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 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?

I would look on webmd but if her underarms smell like a penny, she is losing copper. Perhaps vitamins, or talking to your doctor will help.

I would call or take her to her pediatrician. Six seems awful young to be having underarm odor.

Does anyone have underarm odor that doesn't seem to go away? No matter how may times you shower/bathe, and no matter how many different deodorants you use?
