Dear Dr. Armpit, I read a very interesting article about your research in de Volkskrant. I’v had a very bad odor under my right armpit for the last 10 years. In the article I read that also the people in the control group, who just used plain cottonpads, reached a reduce in smell. I would like to try this myself at home. What kind of cottonpads did you use in the experiment and how? Could you tell me a litte more about this please? I think it’s worthwhile a try. Thank you in advance. And keep on doing this research, it’s very important. I would be so happy if this problem could by fixed. Best regards.
Dear Flo, We used regular cotton pads. You could use a simple cotton shirt as well. Our research showed that cotton enables the staphylococci to grow, while the corynebacteria were unable to grow in it. Accordingly, you can try to ‘cultivate’ your own staphylococci and as such obtain a better underarm microbiome. Good luck, Chris
