Change your food: you sweat what you eat. start hydrating yourself very well that is the first key. 6-8 bottels of water a day do not eat with a lot of spices.specially Asian and Indian definitly cut down on a lot of red meat. keep a good personal hygiene,and shave under arm frequently. not better see a dermatologist they might be able to help you.
