Probiotics?

I have had this smelly armpit problem since I was 13 years old and am now 18 years old. I have tried nearly everything from natural deodorants to strong chemical based anti perspirants. I am reaching the end of my tether but I won’t give up. You say that the smell under our armpits is due to the bacteria that live there right? What do you think would happen if I started taking probiotics? Do you think this would somehow help change the bacteria in/on my body seeing as everything is linked to the gut?

Hi, thanks for your question. I have not heard of experiences that oral antibiotics can alter the skin microbiome. If it has an effect, it will be very small. But there is a certain link between gut and skin. Having a healthy BMI, eating many vegetables, eating less meat and fast food can definitely have an impact on the underarm odor. Best, Chris
