B.O.: Wash more frequently and use an antibacterial soap. If regular deodorant does not solve the problem, consult a dermatologist. Use a topical antibiotic which works very well in most cases. The problem really is due to a certain type of bacteria eliminated early with with topical antibiotics. If you use regular deodorant use it only at night!
