Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Body Odor

Body Odor

Body odor is a perceived unpleasant smell our bodies can give off when bacteria that live on the skin break down sweat into acids. Body odor is most likely to occur in our feet, groin, armpits, genitals, pubic hair and other hair, belly button, anus and behind the ears.

People usually wear socks and shoes, making the sweat difficult to evaporate, giving the bacteria more sweat to break down into smelly substances. Moist feet also raise the risk of fungi developing, which can also give off unpleasant smells.
