Body Odor/Sweating

Body odor is affected by what sweat glands emit. If body odor is very unpleasant it may affect your social life. Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and may sometimes signal a more serious health problem. Although perspiration is basically odorless, it can take on an unpleasant smell when it comes into contact with bacteria on skin. Body odor may be cause due to kidney disease, fungal infection, liver disease, some medicine, stress, or anxiety. Poor hygiene is the most common reason for body odor.

Home Remedies
  • Cornstrach: Apply cornstarch to odor-prone areas which minimizes moisture and discourages bacterial growth.
  • Tomato: Soak yourself for 15 minutes in bath water with couple of cups of tomato juice in it.
  • Vinegar: Instead of using deodorant, wipe your sweat producing areas like armpit using white vinegar or alcohol.
  • Baking soda: Apply some baking soda on arm pit, it will absorb sweat and kill bacteria.
  • If your body odor is caused due to any medicine that you are on, then you need to talk to your doctor.
Do's
