Why do I always have smelly armpits? I shower well, shave my pits. I don't use deodorant becuz it doesn't help & makes it worse. It's embarrassing

Antiperspirants can help cut down on the amount of sweating, especially if applied at night before going to bed, when you are least sweaty. Foods like onions and garlic can also increase the odor. ...Read more

Bumpy Butt: "bumpy butt" is often caused by a problem called folliculitis. Of course without seeing it there is no way to tell you the real nature of this problem.
