my inner clothes stain
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 10 months ago

ok Thank you for the confirmation

The inner clothes getting stained is a sign of Chormhidrosis which may be also causing the bad odor.

I would suggest you can get the sweating reduced by application of Aluminium hexahydrate

This is available as Vichy anti perspirant cream

the other option is to get Botox injected every year in your underarm to block the sweat glands in your underarm area.

I don't really sweat that much though
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Do I still need an antiperspirant?
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 10 months ago

Yes , it is not about excessive sweating . It is about reducing the sweat which may be seen microscopically .

The fact that your clothes stain and you get smelly armpits defines the fact that you do sweat but microscopically

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
