Remedy for Bad Underarm Odor

I have tried everything from lime to baking soda to milk of magnesia. I try to remove all the bacteria as much as possible with methylated spirit. I use a men's deodorant now and nothing seems to be working. I am a teenager. It is very embarrassing because I am a leader in many groups and a lot of people talk bad about me. Please help.

White Vinegar on cotton balls. Squeeze out the vinegar until the vinegar isn't dripping, but the cotton ball is moist and apply to your under arms. Do this daily until you think you can start to apply deodorant again. You will know when you need to re-start the white vinegar cotton balls again. Also try white vinegar on the under arms of your clothing, before you wash them. This truly works.

Is this an odor problem, or is it also excessive perspiration. My son had excessive perspiration, and used a product called Drysol with very good results.


You might want to talk to a pharmacist about this, as they might have some suggestions of products to use. If over the counter remedies do not work, I suggest you see a doctor. Home remedies seldom are effective.

Mom of 4 boys .. The ONLY thing that worked for them and various friends that spent the night is Fels Naptha. LOL I have had more than one mom call me and ask what the heck got rid of the boy stink. Boys tend to have almost an oily sweat and it just absorbs into the skin or something.

It's old fashioned laundry soap, like Nana would have made. It's yellow long bar and in the laundry aisle in the grocery store.
Open the wrapper and let it air out. Then wash using it like regular soap.


It's been used in my home for over 35 years. Also works on old lady/man smell. Things that did not work or work well - Dawn, shampoos, alcohol scrubs, vinegar afterwards.

You have them bathe with it or you wash their clothes with it?

Take white vinegar and in the shower put it into your pits straight not mixed with water. Get out of the shower and pay the area dry then get crystal stick deodorant (looks like a rock and can be found in cvs and use after you get out of the shower) if you sweat a lot follow up with cornstarch - I just dip a make up brush in it and powder my pits that way.


Works very well at controlling order and wetness

Do not use any antibacterial or alcohol related that will kill the good bacterial at your make it worse...

Try different type/brand of normal soap....every manufacturer have different pH of soap and you just need the correct one....not saying that it's has to be the soap problem....but using a right pH soap can minimise the problem....change your diet too.....change one by one to see which foods/ingredient is causing the problem

If you do not have u tight budget, u can try getting marie france deodorant. It gives you amazing result, i used it for the first time and my armpits doesnt smell instantly + it helps whiten your pits. Because this deodorant is a bit expensive, i just got one bottle and it lasted for 3 months . The next 3 months i did not apply any deodorant cause it does not smell at all !


Give it a try and im sure you are happy with the result !
If you are seriously on a tight budget, use baking soda . Mix a tablespoon or teaspoon of baking soda with water, make it into a paste. While u are bathing, u can massage this paste onto your armpits, it do helps getting rid of odours and whitening your pits but it does take weeks to see the result . <- you have to do it regularly to make it more effective . Hope it helps :)
