What is this?

It seems lately like I have a almost musky smell coming from my armpits. Its really bugging me. I have to shower twice a day and I have to put deodorant on almost hourly. I cant get the smell out of my cloths either. This is a recent thing since the summer started. I haven't used anything newly scented. Same brands and same smells. I am not on any pills/medications. This is really bugging me. I cant seem to find anything online about it. Anyone know?

  • Switch deodorant. I find I must use an antiperspirant, -I thought I could get away with just using deodorant but I didn't like the results. Read the ingredients on the deodorant package and pick something different than you use now. Pre-treat your clothes to try to get the smell out- or try soaking then in vinegar.

  • I have to switch deodorants every month or so or I think it starts reacting weird with my body and smells weird (worse in the summer) but you can go back and forth between a few different ones.
