Bad armpit odor

Posted by Ilss @ilss, Oct 11, 2011

The last 4 weeks I can not wash the bad odor from my armpits. There is no water with the sweating, it is dry. I will wash them 3 to 4 times in the shower using different bar soaps and body washes and I can still smell the bad odor. Within an hour it smells like I haven’t washed in days. It is very embarrassing to say the least. Any ideas why or how to stop this? I stopped using deoderant for a few days and then tryed a different one. I stopped taking all my vitamins 2 weeks ago and only take generic prilosec. I am at a loss as to what I should try now. Help!

Try using straight Rubbing alcohol for a week or so and see if that helps If it does then go back to your deoderant * Also certain medications can give you a body odour, changing your deoderants or rotating them might help


I had something similar, only in my groin. I used a solution of 10 parts water to on e part chlorine bleach. Washed well, rinsed, then washed with my regular body soap. Mine cleared up in a few days.
Worth a shot and you already have the ingredients I’m sure. Try powdering you arm pits with a little baking soda also.
