Reducing Armpit Odor

I was using Rexona soap for 3 months. After that I developed an odor coming from my armpits. I even remove the hair from my armpits, but it does not help. It is very noticeable even in winter. I tried Lifebuoy and Dove soap, but there is no change. Can anyone please give me solution?

Try Secret Clinical Strength. It's more expensive but it really does work.

Rexona (by Unilever and sold primarily in India) may have changed the ingredients in the line you were using. Companies like to change the formula and ingredients thinking they are improving their products but of course that so-called improvement often isn't and the user ends up having an allergic reaction to the changed product.

Also, your water supplier may have changed the chemicals used to render your water fit for human use and the odor is being caused by a chemical reaction between the soap and the water.

And to really complicate things, your deodorant may have also been changed by the maker and you are having a chemical reaction to that.

For now, try using a teaspoon or so of bicarbonate with or in place of your deodorant. The bicarb will neutralise the chemical reaction and should end the odor problem.

Use baking soda a pinch under each arm.

I'm a big fan of treating the cause, not the symptom. Have you talked to anyone about the possible cause of the odor? The deodorant, your diet, your bath or laundry soap, your shirt fabric, or any number of illnesses could cause the odor. Try changing one thing at a time to "smell" it's effect. And I agree with the bicarb.

The replies assume that you use deodorant but you havent mentioned it. Do you use deodorant/anti perspirant? If not, then try it and see if the odour has gone.

If deodorants dont help, see your Doctor. You may have a bacterial or fungal infection on your skin.

You need to use a deodorant or antiperspirant as well as soap. Mitchem, which is a brand we have here in Canada, is very good.

Dr. A. Weil recomends that you use rubbing alcohol as a deodorant.

It will kill the organism that causes the odor. I put the alcohol in a spray bottle, and use it that way.

Try using milk of magnesia, it works for me after the long search! Hope it will work for you too!
