Dermatologist 's  Response

welcome to healthcare magic.

i will be glad to be of assistance.

this is more likely due to excess sebum being secreted in your arm pit.

it would be better to see a photo and then opine.

this problem will definitely cause body odour, hence its important to keep the area clean.

apply t bact cream to treat bacterial infection.

also application of retino a cream for 1 hour daily and washing off at night, will help in keeping the sebum excretion in control.
