Hey Barbara, thanks for your question. Many people have the same. In 50% of the people that we investigated, the left armpit microbiome differs (slightly) from the right armpit microbiome. Apparently, in your left armpit there are some malodor causing species present, while your right pit doesn’t have any. You can try using some antibacterial products in your left pit, in order to reduce the bacteria, and then let the armpit recolonize for a longer time, so a new, hopefully better odorous, microbiome can become established there. Best, Chris
