Hi ‘Female’, thank you for the question.

Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the area and give you the best treatment options. Typically the odor is caused by bacteria that are naturally found on the skin of the axillae (arm pit) and they are activated by our sweat glands. The dermatologist may prescribe strong antiperspirant applications but ultimately one may have to consider Botox treatments in the axillae (every 6 to 8 months) to reduce or eliminate the sweating all together.
