Causes of axillary odor
Axillary (armpit or underarm) odor is a condition that, while not life-threatening, does noticeably affect daily life. Sufferers may feel self-conscious during social interactions, communication and daily activities.
During hot, dry weather or intense physical activities, ample sweating makes axillary odor even worse.
The causes of this condition are:
- Daily diet high in fat, greasy foods or odorous herbs and spices such as onions, garlic, etc.
- Improper hygiene.
- Using too much deodorant.
- Extensive physical labor or activities which leads to excessive sweating.
- Plucking axillary hair, using razors or other substances to wax axillary hair.
Laser Axillary Odor Treatment is specifically developed to combat this issue.
