Hello Dr. Chris. I am a natural (homemade) deodorant user for 7 months now and with this I have also stopped the use of antibacterial soaps and instead I use mild soap. Now I am planning to slowly quit the use of my natural deodorant to go with no product at all; just mild soap every shower. I also plan on just washing my armpits with plain water and no soap on some days. Will this eventually balance out the bacteria in my armpits and stop the odor in the long term? Thanks!
