Hi! I am really curious because my husband has barely ANY stinky-human smell at all. The lack of smell in the armpit area is particularly intriguing. Even after 4 days of no showering, the armpit has nary a trace of stinky armpit smell. His clothes, even when dirty, don't really smell (like, ahem, mine do). Why are some people not-so-stinky?
Hey, the reason is because he has a 'good' microbiome present on his skin & in this axillae, which don't create any body odor. I guess he has >98% of the staphylococci. In many cases, there is a mixture of staphylococci, corynebacteria and other bacteria present in the axillae. After a while, the corynebacteria and other bacteria will start to create unpleasant odors, making a shower necessary. Best, Chris
