Body Odor Treatment That Works Guaranteed

Updated on August 27, 2009

What are the causes of excess body odor?

Bromhidrosis, or body odor, is an unpleasant thing to suffer from; however there is really no escape from it.  The best you can do is find the right body odor treatment for you.  We all produce sweat, some sweat more than others, and certain foods can affect the way your sweat smells.  

Body odor can be embarrassing, but there is an easy treatment for everyone.  Have you ever gone to the shoe store and dreaded the thought of taking off your shoe in front of the salesperson because you were unsure just how awful your foot might smell?  Well, then you are not alone.  Foot odor and underarm odor are the two body odors that can have a very negative affect on your self-esteem and confidence. 

Learn About Body Odor Treatment That Will Help You

Body odor affects human beings after they hit puberty.  When people hit puberty, their body begins production of hormones called androgens.  We have these androgens present in our body our whole lives, but they do not become activated until puberty.  That is why when you are a child, body odor is not an issue.

Sweat is produced by the body as its “cooling system”.  It is your body's way of regulating its temperature.  If we did not sweat, our bodies would overheat and we would overheat.  Surprisingly, sweat is basically odorless until it reaches the skin.  Upon reaching the skin, bacteria present use the sweat that has reached the skin's surface as a breeding ground and multiplies rapidly, thus producing the foul smelling body odor.

It's a gross, but natural part of life.  Luckily, there is a treatment for body odor that is right for you.  Bathing after exercising (at least daily) will help with any body odor.  Also, after bathing, make sure to apply and antiperspirant/deodorant to your underarms.  Wash your workout clothes often if working out is your main cause of body odor.  The best to fight body odor is to prevent it.  Practicing good hygiene and wearing an antiperspirant is usually enough for most people to regulate their body odor.
