Annoying: Body odor can change with your diet intake - such as large amounts of garlic or other spices. I have linked an article that may help you research your symptoms. Http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/preventing-body-odor Lower left abd pain - always think constipation. Make sure having regular bowel movements, lots of water and fiber. If recent exercise may be mild abd muscle sprain.

I have two hard bumps under my skin under my armpits. What could they be? I changed soaps recently and use the same deodorant, wore a jacket.

Plugged glands?: Most likely these represent apocrine or sweat glands that have become plugged from you deodorant. If you use an antiperspirant the 'aluminum chlorohydrate' pinches off the gland so that they don't secrete fluid. It backs up and viola you have a bump. Change to deodorant alone. Other concerns would be abscess if you have pain/heat/redness at site or lymph node. If grow/become tender, see a doc.

I notice when I wear white I have brighyellow stains the same color as urine. My armpits smell horrible soap and deodorant doesn't work. What is this?

Hyperhidrosis: You have axillary hyperhidrosis. If over the counter antiperspirants are not working, including Certain Dri, you should consider prescription based medication of higher % aluminum chloride. Remember to apply at night when you are not sweating. Another option is oral medication, but this can cause side effects. The yellow color is a reaction of your sweats and the antiperspirant.

My underarm smells awful evrytime it sweats even though I use antibacterial soap and deodorant. Help?

Body odor: Underarm odor is caused by bacteria in the skin. To minimize profuse sweating, you not only have to use deodorant but also an antiperspirant (look for ammonium or aluminum) in the deodorant. If that fails, you can use drysol or Botox injections.

I keep getting red bumps in my armpits. Quit using any deodorant for over a month. Just washing with regular soap. Both sides. What should I do?

See your doctor: You probably have an inflammation of infection of the sweat glands or hair follicles. You may need topical or even oral antibiotics or combination of these plus steroids to get rid of it. Itching vs soreness can help distinguish between allergic contact dermatitis vs infection.

I have bright yellow stains on white shirts, and yellow stuff on my armpits they smell horrible. Deodorant and soap isn't helping? Tried drysol too

Hyperhidrosis: Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hyperhidrosis/care-at-mayo-clinic/treatment/con. I thought the Mayo Clinic site provided thoughtful and comprehensive advice regarding treatments for Hyperhidrosis. Medications, surgeries are discussed. Best of luck to you and have a nice day.

The apocrine sweat: Glands in the armpit secrete a fatty type of sweat different from skin sweat glands. Bacteria work on apocrine sweat creating bromhidrosis resulting in offensive/hard to control odor. The basic strategy is cleaning the skin regularly (1-2 X daily) with germicidal soap to reduce bacteria, shaving, drying, strong anti-perspirant. Discard stained clothing. Keep doing same, just more/more intensely.

Body odor: Body odor is very much affected by our diet. Medications and stress can also change it. Staying well hydrated with pure water. Eating a 'clean' diet (avoid fast foods, pre-packaged products, preservatives, excessive red meat) and regularly exercising will help reduce unnatural body odor. If odor persists despite addressing the above issues, consider consultation with an endocrinologist or Gyne

Have had a yellowish coating on about 1/3 of both my armpit hairs and has a horrible smell uses bar soap daily and never deodorant been there longtime?

Bacterial overgrowth: More than likely you have "trichomycosis axillaris" which is an overgrowth of normal bacteria from your skin called corynebacteria. Try antibacterial soap or hibiclens wash (careful not to get in eyes). If this does not clear it see your dermatologist. You might need either topical or oral antibiotics (erythromycin).

I have an underarm odor, right side only, after Mirena, (levonorgestrel) which was removed. No lumps, good hygiene, changed deodorants & soap, topical Clindamycin?

Odor: Generally body odor is a testosterone mediated result. The progesterone in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) has testosterone (male hormone) like properties. If it continues after several months after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal, you might want to have your doctor check your testosterone level. Also try aluminum prescription deodorant.

Have v sensitive skin n my armpit started bleeding when I was shaving. Applied soap 4 times stung its not healed but very sore should I skip deodorant?

Yes: While applying deoderant probably not dangerous, it is likely to irritate the area like the soap did, so to avoid for a few days would feel better.

Sweat gland: The armpit with arm down is a partially closed space prone to infections. The skin here has sweat glands and sebaceous glands which can get secondarily infected from sweat. Use electric razor to remove hair and then deodorant. Hidradenitis or infection from sweat glands is not uncommon
