Lol well can anyone help?
First, a friendly word. Welcome to the forum! Second, another friendly but NOT condescending word. It may not be as bad as you think. My wife thinks her underarms smell really bad and I can't smell anything! Third, what she does about it. She has an allergy to artificial scents of any kind. Strange, but natural scents such as those found in essential oils don't affect her. So she wears antiperspirant instead of deodorant and occasionally puts a tiny drop of some oil such as Lavender, Peppermint, or Frankincense on her wrists. Our daughter is a dealer for Young Living essential oils and gives these to us, so I don't really know their cost, but they work. The ladies on this forum can probably help you more than I can but I wanted to tell you about my wife's approach because it might help you. Good luck!
