Hello,

I understand your feeling

I would.like to say that it is normal with everyone that armpits stinks it differs person to person and their age. People usually stink more in reproductive age group. Stinking is because of the gland secretions bacterial growth, and it not only happens in the armpits but also in other parts like area of private parts and back of knee sometimes belly button, between the toes these are the areas where you can't clean under your vision so if the dirt is left over like that it starts stinking and also the hair play a part in development of the odour.

Prcaution that should be taken to avoid odour is after having bath make sure that your body is dry each and every part should be cleanly wiped and dried with a dry towel especially the armpits and another is keeping your armpits clean regular with different ways of hair removal and you can chose the way of your convenience. There is no harm in using anti perspirants as they have long effect and last long and also use body deodorants to avoid odour. Or if you don't like anti perspirants then you can use body calcium powders but know that these won't last for longtime. Make sure you're wearing cleaned clothes everytime but not the clothes you already wore once. By following above precautions you can prevent the problem you're facing.

Thank you.
