my little sis has a really bad odor. i find it pretty unbearable and would love to help her. i have told her about it on several occassions but it never gets better. she would have a bath now and then, poof!! it's back in half an hour to an hour. To be honest its not coming from her armprit. whenever she wears skirt and open her legs, the smell gets really high. Her room is small and once u enter that bad odor just hits u. Can any tell me what could be happening as well as which type of doctor is the best to see her and what treatment i could explore. I really dont want her using counter products because they can cause more harm than good. i really want to help her but i would like to hear yall suggestion.
Tell your sister that when she washes down below, she also must wash in between the labia majora and the labia minora, as smegma can build up and cause a not very pleasant odour.
Tell her not to use perfumed soaps. The best way to wash down below is with plain water, use non perfumed soaps and those soaps that have a pH level like our skin. Baby washes should be fine. Tell her not to use any talcs or feminine sprays. Her natural body odour may also be counteracting with any washing detergent, using non-biological washing detergents may be better.
Tell your sister to wash every day like explained above and put on clean underpants every day - and not wear the same pair of pants for more than one day. If she does sweat a lot, she may need to change her underwear more often.
If this does not stop the bad odour, then she should be examined by her doctor to make sure that she does not have any bacterial or fungal problem.
Bicarbonate of Soda, which can be purchased from the supermarket on the bakery section or from the pharmacy is also a good way to eliminate bad odours. But hygiene is of paramount importance.
In her bedroom, get the windows open from time to time to air the room. Sprinkling Bicarbonate of Soda on the carpet before vacuuming will also help to eliminate bad odours.
