According to your is
BROMHiDROSIS.. it is due functional defect, depend on pattern of glands..,
arranged in the Axilla..smell is due to bactrial decomposition on sweat.,

welcome to healthcaremagic..
grafting doesnt help and it cannot be done without a proper indication..u ll have to shell out your whole salary post surgery..all u can do is eat healthy cos eating habits is the one which causes bad odour..its very normal to have odour in the dont worry a lot..there are lot more simple ways to treat it..also get a blood test done to rule out diabetes and any other infections which can also cause it..
