In brief: Leave it alone

Hi Gary 799. Your underarm (axilla) has a lot of oil/scent/pheremone glands and the hair is there to help spread your smell to attract other humans.
I try to get people to embrace this natural part of themselves. Any treatments, particularly shaving but including anti-perspirants, can cause more trouble than you might suspect. Consult a dermatologist if you must proceed.
