I had MiraDry once and even a Laser-Suction-Method after that. Both did not change anything! It just got worse over the years.

Hi Chris, thank you so much for your research! At least one person truly cares about us! I just read in one post, that you could meet people from Belgium? So I wonder if you are from Belgium? Because I am from Germany and would travel there to meet you. I know you cannot cure my BO (I guess Bromhidrosis) at the moment, but maybe a talk would be helpful. I'm suffering since 7 years (it started as in most cases after puberty) and did a lot of trials and research and got a lot of wits, but no solution yet, but lot of solution"rudiments". Continue your work, you are great! Wishing you all the best!

I currently have hyperhidrosis and underarm odor. My underarm odor smells like onions. The odor occurs 5 mins or so after I'm done taking a shower. The only thing that acutally helps is Botox which only last 2-3 months. Has anyone tried miraDry? I've notice if I eat onions, garlic, or any strong spices the odor will be more pungent.

hello, Me and my friend Isabelle Hobo from the Netherlands are doing a schoolproject for our exams. We are in our last year of high school. In this year we have to do a search, we do it on the effectiveness of deodorant/anti-perspirant. So it's very important for us to know which bacteria there in your armpits are and what they do. Would you be able to give us information about that? We would like to contact you want if you are interested in! Thanks in advance! Greetings from the Netherlands, Britt de Leeuw

Hi folks, I have used sodium bicarbonate(NaHCO3, baking soda) as a deodorant for 20 years. Just wet a finger, dab it in the powder and then rub it around the armpit. I think it works because NaHCO3 is basic. Increasing the pH makes life hard for the bacteria. The alkaline environment also might neutralise the volatile(and smelly) organic acids that the bacteria produce. The sodium salts of these acids would not be volatile. The effect is instantaneous. The only side effect I've noticed is that your armpit hair becomes a bit lighter over time!

What do you think about Lume? It's a new idea to combat smelly bacteria: http://www.startribune.com/chaska-doctor-offers-new-way-to-snuff-out-bo/448536943/ ....Does it have potential for me if my armpit ALWAYS smells? (meaning that the bacteria are inside of the sweat glands and in the skin).

I experience odor in my groin area, pretty much anywhere I can sweat with folds I will have a strong odor. Will bacteria transplants help this area too, or is it only for armpits? Also there are a lot of spam comments posting lately, I saw at least 3.

Question posted by Todd
I would like to try an armpit transplant with my brother. He is virtually odorless, I am quite stinky. We would like to try and see if we can do an armpit transplant, like the ones done in your research, on a DIY level. I have read some of your published papers, but have not found a detailed description of your "methods". From my understanding we need to deplete my axillary biome as much as possible, while simultaneously building his up, and then simply transfer his armpit sweat over to mine. I'm not sure if there is anything to be done afterward to help it stick. I was planning on washing with antibacterial soap and wiping with rubbing alcohol for 4 days while my brother sweats it up and doesn't shower. Then transferring with something like a sterile shoe-horn. Is there anyway you be willing to share your methods? I promise to share my anecdotal results.
