Customer Question

My body chemistry has changed in recent years. For the first time in my life I now have body odor that seems to be omitted when I am hot, nervous, or anxious from my underarms. I was an active athlete in my earlier years and never experienced this. I have tried many different types of deodorant and nothing helps. I am embarrased to be in a relationship because of this. What can I do?

HelloCustomer

Thank you for using Justanswer for your question.

There just happened to be a new article on WebMD that came out today on this very topic. See:

See if this is helpful. If not get back to me and either I will find other suggestions or i will opt out and see if another expert can help you.

This does not answer my question. I've tried Secret Clinical Strength all times of night and day and it seems to make the problem worse

Ok. There are more invasive treatments. This includes botox, surgery, and drugs. See this article and look under "treatments" for the discussion of how these work.
