body odor under 1 armpit

i have odor under ONE armpit and no matter HOW MUCH i wash it it wont go away. i read on here someone using a soap with sulfur and that works temporarily but not for long. i tried antibacterial soap, ive tried different deodorants, crystal ones even. the crystal ones work better than the regular but i still have a nasty smell under 1 armpit. anybody have a clue or tips or something? i tried cleaning it with peroxide, rubbing alcohol, scrubbing, everything!

Re: body odor under 1 armpit

Have you tried altering the pH? I know that an infection can be very persistant if your pH is wrong in the area. I don't know if you're too acid or alkaline, but it seems like you could try lemon juice one day and then baking soda the next and see if either one works.

Re: body odor under 1 armpit

Don't do them both at once. Try one one day, and the other the next if the first didn't work for you. I'm just throwing ideas out, because I do know that pH can really affect things a lot. I would just apply it topically. It's really hard to change your internal pH by drinking or eating anything, and everything I've read seems to disagree on exactly how to go about it. Topically, the lemon juice should make the area more acidic (try this one day), the baking soda should make it more alkaline (try this a different day). If you mix the 2 together, it's just going to neutralize the pH, so it would be kind of like putting on water.
