Hi, As a person suffering from perpetual bad body odour, I\'ve been trying to research best ways to keep it under control. It\'s just so confusing because different websites say different things and I\'m no medical professional so I can\'t sort out what\'s reliable and what isn\'t. The amount of info. is overwhelming but most of it targets people who have \'situational\' odours and not those who are smelling bad no matter what. I\'ve had smelly armpits since soon after I turned 14 and nothing seems to work out. I\'m currently using Drysol, Benzoyl Peroxide, Hibiclens skin cleanser, boie scrubber and Certain Dri anitperspirant in some form and I feel helpless having to constantly test every cleanser or deodorant just in case it might work. All the medical personnel I\'ve seen either can\'t find any cause and/or tell me they don\'t smell anything and that I\'m basically making this whole issue up so it\'s not like I haven\'t tried seeking medical attention before. At this point, I have very little direction on where to go or what to do to potentially lesson by bad BO but I came across your website today and then also watched your TED Talk and was so glad there was somebody that was treating this as a serious issue. Please let me know anything you want to share with me. I at the very least would love to hear the results of any updates on your research. I\'m in the US (New York) and I\'m quite sure Belgians don\'t celebrate Thanksgiving or I would\'ve wished you a happy holiday. Take care, and thanks for all you do on this!
