Underarms sweating and stinking a lot! Please Help
Patient : Hi Doctor, I am a fifteen year old girl.My underarms (a.k.a armpits) sweat a lot even though girls do not sweat that much! It bothers me a lot and they are even dark. Whenever i walk for a few minutes, they sweat and stink, whenever i sit in a warm place or have my sweater on for 10 minutes, they sweat and stink and it's not that I do not take baths, I do that but whenever they sweat, they stink immediately and its bothersome and it worries my when i hug people and greet them if they smell it too. Please help on what i can do. Oh and my underarms are also dark my friend told me to wax them which helps but I'm afraid and all i use for hair removal is a hair removal cream such as Nair and Veet. Any suggestions??
