Any treatments for chronic underarm odor?


Posted by Missy08

Hello, I have been suffering from chronic underarm odor for three years now. I am fourteen years old. I've tried several deodorants, and antiperspirants including Secret Clincal Strength, Dove's secret clinical strength, crystal deodorant, & Certain Dri. Not to mention, I sweat a lot too. I shower everyday, and wear clean clothes. I believe I am pretty healthy. My parents think I am exaggerating and wouldn't take me to the doctor's. Are there any treatments to get rid of chronic underarm odor forever? If so, please tell me. Thank you.

Try"Thieves" toothpaste, as wacky as that sounds. Order it from youngliving.com, the essential oils folks, or find a local Young Living distributor. Not sold in stores. My husband, bless his heart, has hairy armpits that used to smell like a rank caveman. Nothing worked. Then someone told me that a tiny bit of Thieves toothpaste rubbed in the armpit after his evening shower really works. Give yourself a little time for the pores to close from the hot shower before applying it. It completely eliminates his BO for the entire next day. This is an absolute miracle. A tube will last a very long time b/c you use very little.

I know exactly what you are going through. I'm 18 years old and a senior in high school and i've been suffering from chronic underarm odor and excessive sweat i mean there's days when i just smell bad and then theres days when i smell bad a sweat really bad. I don't know what to do i've tried every deodorant out there, including, Secret Clincal Strength, Dove's secret clinical strength and even guys deodorant spray Axe. I also shower everyday and wear clean clothes. I'm pretty sure there is nothing wrong with me but I know that a cause of it is diabetes and i have a family history of that so i'm scared. But anyway one day i was trying on clothes and my mother noticed the smell and she questioned me about it and i told her how i have tried every deodorant out there, so she made an appointment after looking up on the internet what it could be and when she noticed that diabetes is a cause of it the she got worried but I don't know what else to do...Someone plz help!
