Dr armpit-Why do my armpits smell really bad after applying apple cider, white vinegar, lemon or alcohol? The smell stays in my clothes and hydrogen peroxide smells awesul too when it comes in contact with my armpit skin... I wonder if it's a ph issue? I might have to buy some ph strips to test my sweat...

Hi, yes good question. I guess that the sweat molecules dissociated upon contact with the acids, H2O2 and other products you used. The dissociated compounds become volatile and have an odor. Do the armpits not smell when no products are used? Best, Chris
