Cotton Pads

Q&ACotton Pads
angie asked 3 years ago
Dear Dr. Chris.  I have read that cotton can inhibit growth of odorous bacteria and promote good smelling ones. What if I use pads made up of cotton and leave it on my armpits overnight, everyday? Will that help in lessening bad smelling bacteria? Thanks for all your efforts with this study and I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Angie, yes you can definitely try this. We used cotton pads to support the transplanted bacteria and help prevent external contamination. Don't be afraid to continue using those pads even when they become a bit smelly. Cotton is an effective way to grow the 'good' bacteria, and not the smelly ones. Best, Chris
