How to get rid of body odor?
Hello, I have a boy friend who is 21 years old. He smells very bad. His smelly armpits are unbearable. How to get rid of body odor? Please provide some inputs.
@papiya Body odor happens when your sweat meets the bacteria on the surface of your skin and makes an unpleasant smell. If body odor is a problem for you, you can do a few things to help manage it:
Try a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water to fight body odor. Use 1 teaspoon of peroxide (3%) to 1 cup (8 ounces) of water. Wipe this on affected areas (underarms, feet, groin) with a washcloth. This may help destroy some of the bacteria that create odor.
If sweat from working out is your No. 1 cause of body odor, wash your workout clothes often. Sweaty gym clothes are a bacteria breeding ground.
Change your diet. Stay from the kinds of foods that can cause body odor. But always talk to a doctor or dietitian before making drastic changes to your diet.
