  • I don't know either other than asking her doctor. Wash them every day, of course. maybe some baking soda dusted there. Perhaps using organic milk for her to drink?

  • It is just bacteria mixed with sweat. You can try giving her less layers to minimize the sweating.

    Also, garlic, onions, chives, curry, turmeric,and like spices will make the pits smells . . . .so cut down on those if she is eating any of that.

  • I would check this with your doctor just to make sure there isn't an underlying problem.
