- I have a 10 year old boy who, for several months, has a bad odor (axillary) sweat. She washes daily, she changes her clothes daily, she does not put much physical effort and however, the situation is very unpleasant. I read a lot of negative things about antiperspirants, so I dare not let him use that again. I mention that the perspiration is normal from a quantitative point of view, that is, the water does not flow on it, nor do you realize that it has transpired if you do not have the unpleasant smell. Kindly advise me how to proceed or refer me to a specialist doctor. Thank you. MihaelaAnswer:
Antiperspirants have an effect as long as they are used, they do not solve the problem of perspiration but are a solution of the type "throwing garbage under the carpet". A homeopathic consultation is very necessary in the case of your boy.
Health wishes you,
