In brief: Underarm smell

Odor from underarms is mostly due to bacteria on the skin and in the follicles.
Using a antibacterial soap, strong antiperspirant and topical antibiotics such as Erythromycin or Clindamycin lotions may help. Botox injected into underarms will reduce swetting and may help as well.
