Dear, thanks for sharing. Corticosteroids are molecules that tamper/lower the skin immune system. One needs to be very careful with these topical products. Please use very carefully and only when absolutely needed. You do not want to mess up the skin immune system too much if it is not necessary. If the skin immune system is affected, this can also have an impact on the precursor molecules that lead to BO. That is probably the reason for underarm malodor with the use of this product. Best, Chris
