Wait, if you go to the doctors and they prescribe a topical antibiotic for your underarm area, the malodorous bacteria still grow back? Why is this?

Hi Liza, thanks for your question. The topical antibiotic can help in eliminating certain malodorous species. In the period after the application (please give your armpit some rest and don't apply anything for some time), the fastest and most adapted bacterial species will regrow. And they are able to kick out some of the most smelly ones - so they hopefully never return. Best, Chris
