Controlling Body Odor

I am a 15 year old and I have really bad body odor. I sweat a lot which does not help at all. It's usually when I sweat that the odor starts and people are reporting me to the health aid and making fun of me before class starts. It's really upsetting me so much that I never want to be in class because I am so embarrassed. It mainly only happens at school, when I get home the sweating stops and so does the body odor so I am really confused. I don't know what to do. I don't know how much more I can take the teasing. It hurts so much and I am always embarrassed to be around other people at school because I don't want to be made fun of. Someone please help me I don't know what to do.

Your family doctor can help identify your problem with testing, etc., and provide treatment to help reduce the sweating and body odor. Your doctor may refer you to specialist for a specific diagnosis and treatment.

Good Luck!

Take a very hot steamy shower before bed. Drink lots of water. the water temperature should be similar to the weather outside. This helps regulate your body. Visit your doctors office and ask for help. It could just be normal anxiety and that can be prescribed for.

If your doctor will prescribe it, a small dose of the anti depressant Paxil has off label benefit of less break out sweating. Also, Hebiclens used in the shower helps alot too. Best of luck, hang in there.

You'll be sweating more at school due to nerves and anxiety because of the bullying, it's a catch 22 really. You sweat so they bully you whi. Makes you sweat and makes them bully you. I had the same problem and I went to my doctor and got diagnosed with hyperhidrosis and got prescribed driclor (aluminium chloride hexahydrate) which seems to work for me, it's just a special deodorant you use under your arms.

It runs in my family though and my aunt had it worse, she had to get Botox in her armpits every few months to help. School will soon be over and you won't have to put up with the bullies anymore but hopefully you find a solution in the meantime

I tried Botox, and it seemed to work for a while. It definitely cut out the sweating. My problem wasn't sweating it was the odor. Which is still happening. I tried so many home remedies, tropical solutions and drionic machines and all. What help me some is this solution called drysol. I pray that your problem is solved, Also pray on your situation.

Don't be embarrassed to talk to your doctor. But, in the mean time, bring deodorant to school with you. Bring a spare teeshirt that you can change into if you feel too sweaty, and bring wipies! Either makeup removing wipes or wipes for a baby and wipe your under arms and any other smelly place when you use the bathroom at school, then reapply your deodorant.

I always have wipes on me, especially in the summer. I usually have baby powder on me to keep any moist areas dry too. The key here is to be diligent about keeping yourself clean at school. And don't forget to talk to your doc!!!

Your having social sweating. (Or known as stress-sweat). There is a product that they make to actually temporarily seal the sweat pores. Called 'Stop-sweat'. Find it mainly at some Wal-marts (not all of them). You'd apply it to clean underarms, and at night. It takes a few hours to work-may actually make you a little itchy and kinda sweaty for a bit-so give it plenty time to work. This type works very well for stress sweat. After hours of having the Stop-sweat on, you can apply a good smelling Deoderant, just a small amount-to smell extra good. Another tip-Don't use any Deoderant on unclean underarms-I've learned that doing so will ruin the Deoderant or antiperspirant by leaving bacteria on bottle. Good luck.

Try using Irish Spring soap and certain dri deodorant at night. In the morning you can use a regular deodorant to get you through the day hope that helps

I learned in my anatomy class in college that stress sweat is smellier than "regular" sweat. It seems to me that you might be super stressed throughly school and it's causing you to have major BO.

Hi there. Please make sure that you check your clothes too. sometimes, the odor sticks to your clothes and whenever you sweat, It starts to smell. Make sure to wash your clothes in antibacterial soap, or listerine. It works. I hope this helps you.

I have had a problem with being allergic to many deodorants and the ones I used didn't work. What I did is made my own deodorant using a quarter cup of softened coconut oil which is an antibacterial then added 1 tablespoon of baking soda which helps odor and 10 drops essential oil of choice for a nice scent (I use lavender).

You can use lemon or lime or even tea tree, cedarwood or pine for the men. I put mine in a small covered container and apply with fingers. Just beware that coconut oil melts in a hot environment and gets hard in a cold but one, so choose your container wisely. It works for me and no allergic reaction!
