JABARNEWS | BANDUNG – Sweating is a normal process that occurs in the body, including in the armpit area. However, some people may sweat more and have an unpleasant odor.
In some cases, bad body odor can be an indication that someone has a health problem.
British general practitioner Sophie Newton says underarm odor is caused by bacteria on the skin that break down sweat into acids, usually starting at puberty with an increase in hormones called androgens.
“Sweat itself is odorless and has an important job of helping regulate temperature, but bacteria can use it as a breeding ground and that’s when odors form,” explains Dr Sophie.
As reported by The Sun page, Wednesday (12/10/2022), here are some health problems that can be characterized by an unpleasant odor in the armpits.
