If we get the armpit transplant, will we still have to use deodorant? Can we use anti perspirant or will that destroy all the good bacteria?

Hi Aidan, we advise not using any underarm cosmetic for a while in order for the new underarm microbiome to establish itself in the underarm skin niche. Deodorants and antiperspirants contain antibacterial products that will have an adverse effect on the bacteria. Best, Chris
