How to remove gluey armpit hair ?

I have a client that I work with who doesn t move his arms. Finding that his underarm hair gets all sticky like glue over time even when it s washed properly. Switching deodorants and or to roll-ons doesn t do anything. Is there something that can stop this?

Hello, I am thinking about having laser hair removal done in my armpits, and I worry about the long term affect it might have. I know the lasers don t use ionizing radiation however, I m wondering if the procedure could cause inflammation or a possible infection that could trigger something such as breast cancer later on. Is this something to worry about? Thank you

I have these squeeze bumps on my armpits. I discovered them when I removed my armpit hair. When i squeeze them, they came out that look like white fluid. Can you please tell me why I got them and is there any treatment for that? And are they dangerous to my skin or my health?

I have an axillary abscess in the left armpit region. I ve been getting them repeatedly in both armpits for many years and had three incision and drainage procedures. I was prescribed Erythromycin which seems to be one of the few effective treatments for me, but it returns in the same place every time. Can removing all the hair follicles in my armpits help stop it from coming back?
