armpits have been giving off a strong weed like/skunky smell. this started about a month ago. ive scrubbed and scrubbed in the shower with soap. apply deodorant and after all of that i still smell. this smell just wont go away so i imagine it has to be some bacteria. i dont know what to do the smell just persists

Hi Aaron, thanks for sharing. It is frequently seen - although you may think you're alone. The cause is indeed bacterial. Try some topical antibacterial soaps, or if necessary consult a doctor, who can help you as well. You need a period of antibacterials and a period of no washing/cleaning at all (in order for the microbiome to restore). Hope it helps. Best, Chris
