Question posted by Len
My boyfriend left work in the morning smelling like onions. His armpits were so foul that it had stunk up the room. He comes home at night with no smell whatsoever. He says he doesn’t know why that happens. Is this possible? Is it possible for the smell to just magically go away on its on without having to shower?

For months I have been dealing with itchy, sore, raw,armpits. Dry skin is apart of it. My skin is also noticeably dark. It started as a itchy bump, went on to be a yeast infection paired with what seemed to be excels (I used excema cream prescribed to my boyfriend and it all cleared up) and now my armpits are just constantly itchy and sore and raw. This has been going on since June and it’s now December. I plan on changing my deodorant to something more natural and I’m going to start using some ph balancing body wash, what else could I try to see if it helps this problem. I still ise my boyfriends cream, but we are out. I am not diagnosed with excess but the cream seems to always temporarily help. I also plan on trying to moisturize my armpits more often to help with dry itchy skin.

I'm interested in Dr. Armpit's opinion on the new Lume "Deodorant". I put it in quotes because supposedly it's more of an odor preventative. Most deodorants contain antiperspirants that close the eccrine glands, reducing moisture, and/or perfumes that cover up body odor. Lume supposedly works differently — disabling an enzyme that bacteria need to consume molecules and release odor. It is unscented. I bought some and tried it on my groin area, and it works great. I haven't yet tried it on my armpits ... mostly because I naturalized them a long time ago, so I only use a spritz of vinegar after bathing and that tends to keep them mostly smell-free (plus washing my clothes in vinegar or bleach and only wearing natural fiber clothing, plus I had my underarm hair lasered, so nothing grows). Most days I have no stink, even after exercise. On occasion, especially around ovulation, I get crazy stinky armpits for a day or two. I'd like to use the Lume on those days, but I'm worried that I will disrupt my underarm biome. I'm also considering MiraDry, as it would reduce the sweat (even though I don't have a lot, I figured less sweat = less stink).

Thank you Dr.Armpit for your research. I've been struggling with body odor (armpit & feet) and constant bacterial infections since highschool and I thank you for your research. Even though my day-to-day life can be very embarrassing and hard, I've found alternatives (I work from home, which is a HUGE relief and helps with my social anxiety), and I am closely monitoring your page for research updates. This is not an easy topic to tackle and I'm happy to read and learn on this page. If only I could get a doctor to look into the bacteria I have on my armpits, but I have yet to find a doctor who is willing to do a skin biopsy or take me seriously...

Dear Dr Armpit, Recently I read that you are working on a bottle with the good (anti odor) bacteria inside so, people can buy it and be odorfree for some days/weeks. Are you able to tell when it will be in stores (if it will come in stores)? Hoping to hear from you. Thanking you in advance. KR Aimee

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
