@Dr.Armpit, 1) Why is it that my body odour got persistently worse after having ETS surgery? If the nerves are snipped or in my case clamped, the sweating stopped in the armpits but the odour got worse. What is triggering the scent without the sweating? 2

Hi, thank you for your question. It is common that the underarm odor changes (or gets worse) after a surgery. I have encountered many examples of this before. The antibacterial agents used to do the surgery can lead to an altered underarm microbiome. If the immune system is affected, this could also lead to an altered underarm odor. Best, Chris
