Any surface of our body that is warm, dark, and wet . . . is going to smell eventually. But there is no such thing as dry and smelly. If the typical aluminum antiperspirants aren't working, add other ingredients like alkyl benzoate which kills bacteria. Forget the hype about clinical strength (20% aluminum). The TYPE of Al matters most which is ZIRCONIUM. Hope the olanzapine works well for you.
