What do you know about the miraDry procedure that is now available in the US? Would this treatment help with odor reduction?

Years ago I went to a dermatologist with itchy dry skin. He basically said, "You don't get dirty. Just wash the 'naughty bits.'" To this day, I can go days without bathing, or merely wash with water, and while I smell like me, its not stinky body odor! I don't use deodorants or antiperspirants, because in Florida, the latter isn't really effective in the summertime anyway. This is kind of a very personal situation, because it's not the sort of thing you want to share with anyone! Thanks!

Are there any topical probiotics or deoderant containing a probiotic that might be effective? I don't sweat like I did as a teenager, but definitely I'm sure others would agree my hedonic value is negative to quite negative!

I have used the above stick for years and NEVER had a smelly pit. It is the old "rock" that used to be sold in natural supplement stores/vitamin stores. Walgreen's still carries it. It lasts about 2 years! I am a sweater and know that it is good to sweat. I hate anti perspirants because they cause stickiness and rashes.

I just saw an article in the Washington Post about your talk on underarm body odor. Thank you so much for talking about this and researching the subject. I have a condition called hyperhidrosis, which makes me prone to skin issues. It has ruined many parts of my life specifically the chance to succeed at a vocation and having a normal social life. Could you please tell me if there is research going on anywhere in the U.S. like what you are doing? Could you also tell me of ways to increase good bacteria on the skin? I am praying God blesses you and your research is fruitful so that I and others can benefit. Respectfully, JP

Fresh lemon juice. Squeeze it into your fingers and gently(!) rub it onto your underarm. If you have severe body odor, it will be 95% gone. If you have just bathed, it will prevent it from developing. (Ladies, do this the day AFTER you've shaved) Now the question: Is this because (fresh) lemon juice is a natural antiseptic? Is this killing all the bacteria, both good and bad?

Do you have an idea when this treatment is available for patients? Or is there going to be a new studie?

In "Scheire en de Schepping" zei u dat de behandeling gebeurt tussen verwanten. Is dat om medische of om ethische redenen, en welke?
