You are not alone so don't worry too much. It can be a matter of hygiene, diet, weight and could also be that you have some bacterial activity. Teenagers have hormones going wild in their bodies and they stir up all sorts of both pleasant and unpleasant effects. The best you could do is to visit your family doctor who will assess what the main issues are in your particular case. In the meantime, plenty of showers and the use of an anti-bacterial soap will certainly help.

I have a tendency towards strong armpit odor. my mother noticed it when she was changing my diapers. a splash of alcohol in the armpits every morning takes care of it.

You can try taking a daily calcium supplement; look for the ones that also contain vitamin D. There are pretty cheap and calcium is known to reduce body ordor. I assume you already shower daily and keep your body reasonably clean as well as change your clothes on a regular basis.

A good sweat once a day for 20 minutes may help
