4. Wear airy fabrics

As per research published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology and other journals, naturally derived fabrics like cotton, silks, and wool have more breathability when compared to most man-made materials, for example, rayon or spandex. But, you should look for moisture-wicking synthetic materials, when it comes to workout clothes.

5. Eat better food

If you eat foods and spices with strong scents, for example, onion, garlic, and curry, they can mess with your breath.Additionally, the odor can also come through your pores for hours after you have eaten. In case you are eating a bland diet and still struggling with BO, Zeichner recommends putting a few drops of peppermint oil on your tongue. He says that a lot of patients find that this helps. Zeichner says: The thought is that components of the oil are excreted through the oil glands, improving odor.

6. Botox as a last resort.

Less sweat means less odor. This is because there is less moisture to mix with the bacteria. If you have used prescription-strength antiperspirants, but there is no result of that and you are still soaking through your shirts, maybe you can try to get Botox injections under your arms and perhaps on your palms. By doing this treatment, the chemical that activates the body's sweat glands is blocked, so you sweat up to 87% less for 4 months to a year.
