Body| Odour/ unpleasant smell

What causes body odour?

Body odor also known as bromhidrosis, is an unpleasant smell that can occur when you sweat. There are 3-4 million sweat glands on our body. The unpleasant smell is produced by the bacteria on the skin that break down the sweats into acids.

Factors that can make body odour worse:

- overweight

- eating rich/ spicy foods

- medical conditions such as diabetes

Managing your body odor by washing the sweating area every day to removes sweat and reduces the number of bacteria on your skin. Using an antiperspirant or deodorant will help to prevent/ reduce the body odor.
