1) Frequent bathing, changing of socks and underclothes..
and use of deodorants, antibacterial soaps, and dusting powders...,
Also called body odoror patients who desire more long-lasting treatment..,
2) A frequency-doubled, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser has been effective in AXILLARY BROMHIDROSIS

GENITAL BROMHIDROSIS after botulinum toxin A treament is reported...,
Although this method has not been widely tested in treating body odor...,

Smell from perspiration is really a distressing problem.

Some salts excreting from sweat causes this problem.

Avoid eatable like onion,Lasan etc

Take plenty of water.

Wear cotton clothes,avoid synthetic clothes,underwears.

Do not wear undergarments at night.

Take daily bath and keep private parts clean and airy.

Ok and bye.

Use branded deodorent.
