Why you have a sweaty armpit
« on: March 09, 2019, 01:50:36 PM »
Sweat, that body fluid that is good for our health, but smells like a pig. Or so we think! But the surprising truth is that sweat is odorless. Yes, it has absolutely no smell. What is the source of that foul odor that accompanies sweat?



It is not the sweat itself, but a host of other stuff that can cause you to kick up a stench. While most of them originate from modern lifestyle habits, you will be surprised by the other unexpected sources of smelly sweat.

Here are nine solid reasons why we stink, literally!

Your trusted antiperspirant has turned deviant!

Can you believe this? That one cosmetic product that is expected to keep you from smelling becomes the very source of that terrible body odor. This is because deodorants indirectly feed the bad bacteria that cause foul smells. And that is not the end of it.

Your body smells nasty, and your armpits go unhealthy and dry. Healthcare experts have woken up to this as they increasingly advise against the use of deodorants. If you have a body odor problem, you are better off simply washing two or three times a day with plain water. This is more effective and less toxic.

You have succumbed to pressure!

We mean “stress,” that number one anti-hero of the day. Who doesn’t have a reason to be stressed today? Multitasking, work-related pressures, bad traffic, recession, global warming, or even your daily newspaper can all hit you with an undue amount of stress.

There is more – experts have found that this stress-induced sweat is indeed the worst of them all! This automatically sparks two rather smelly hormones: cortisol and adrenaline. They both have different effects on your body. But they are both triggered by stress and cause you to sweat and stink at the same time. You are thus misguided into thinking that your sweat smells. No! It is the sudden tension you felt that is the real culprit. Perhaps it is time to get meditative and de-stress.

There is nothing wrong with focusing on what is important. If you are that stressed out, then you are probably in a tough spot. It is time to make a change! It is time to find another job, to have that discussion with your spouse or child, to fix that car, to ask for that new raise or to begin that certificate program that you have been putting off.

You take excessive medication!

Some of the smelly medications are glaringly obvious, while others are craftily devious. For instance, we can expect fish oil to smell fish-like and hence foul. But so do certain birth control tablets, anti-depressants, anti-allergy medication, metabolism boosting or diet medication, and many herbal medicines and vitamin supplements.

This is a good reason to read the fine print, as leading pharmaceutical companies are now beginning to list smelly odor as a potential side effect of their drugs. In such cases, you are better off requesting your GP to suggest an alternate brand or switch to another drug altogether.

You really do enjoy a spicy meal!

If you are heavily into Italian or fiery Mexican food, you are forewarned. They sure do taste yum, but prepare to stink up the rink! Chilies, garlic, and onion are known offenders. They are healthy though. Your body does love this type of food for the nutrients and minerals in them.

But what you possibly do not know is that they don’t just make your mouth smell, they spread to the whole body until the entire meal is thoroughly digested. So unless you decide to hit the gym immediately afterward and burn it all out, expect body odor for at least a day into the meal. This is also the case with foods high in sulfur content (such as kale and cauliflower) and gas inducing foods like cabbage and radish.

You have been indulgent with alcohol!

All alcoholic drinks slow up your digestive system. So they tend to stay in your system longer–for at least 24 hours after. It gets worse if you are a regular drinker, or have liver or kidney related disorders. This is the reason researchers suggest we break for at least 24 hours between drinks. And just like the spices, the alcohol content causes you to smell until it is completely digested.

Even if you don’t hit the hangover limit, expect to smell like a fish (or worse) after 2-3 drinks. One thing you can do to speed up digestion is hydrate yourself adequately between drinks. That will help to flush it all out with good old water!
