Patient :I've been battling horribly smelly arm pits for several years now. I've tried every type of deodorant and antiperspirant I can think of, even prescribed by a doctor. My arm pits smell even after scrubbing them in the shower. I can also squeeze the pores in my arm pits and either oil or white stuff come out. Both smell absolutely horrible. It's gotten so bad that I avoid some public situations and even avoid hugging and keep my distance from people for fear they will smell me. I know it's bacteria causing the smell but how can I get rid of it? Could this be a sign of something more serious going on with me?
