I am a 20 year old student. My problem is that I have body odor. The problem persists after regular baths. Please let me know what to do.

Sweat itself is basically odorless. But when the bacteria that live on your skin mix with sweat, they can multiply and stink quickly. Thorough washing, especially of areas that tend to sweat, will help remove body odor. Shower at least once a day to wash off sweat and remove some of the bacteria from your skin. Also, a thorough wash with an antibacterial soap bar can help remove some of the bacteria, which can help remove odors. Look for the words “antibacterial” on the soap package. After you shower, dry your body thoroughly, paying close attention to areas that sweat a lot. When your skin is dry, it’s harder for odor-causing bacteria to thrive on it. After cleansing and drying, use a strong antiperspirant on your underarms. They contain aluminum chloride, a chemical that helps prevent sweating, and they often contain deodorants as well. Use twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening. You can get strong antiperspirants without a prescription. Look for ones that say they are stronger. Changing your clothes frequently can also help when you sweat a lot. Clean clothes can help reduce body odour. Be sure to change your socks, especially if you have smelly feet. Use deodorant powder in your shoes, change insoles frequently, and go as barefoot as possible. What you eat can affect your body odor. Foods that make you sweat easily, such as peppers or other spicy foods, can also cause body odor. The aroma of food such as onion or garlic will be released with sweat. Caffeinated or alcoholic beverages may also make you sweat more.
