    Give Dricor a go. It's used for excessive sweaters and I've heard great feed back.

    Sounds bacterial.
    My DH had something like this a few yrs ago.
    I never noticed the smell but he did, so he shaved his armpits and washed the hell out of his skin.
    If it were me I'd got I a doctor but your DH sounds like mine, never goes near them.

    Eta-just went back and read it is not a sweating issue. Disregard my comment.

    Bacterial or maybe even fungal - selsun blue can be used as an over the counter/supermarket anti fungal treatment, but I'd be seeing the GP first.

    I had this problem :/ no matter what antiperspirant I used I still smelt! Even clinical strength ones. Tried antifingal creams, nothing. You know what fixed it? No deodorant, wearing coconut oil and bicarbonate soda. I know, I know, it sounds crazy but it seriously worked. A year later I went back to antiperspirant and gross, smelt by lunch time!! I'll never go back. Yes you have to get used to feeling a bit damp because I still sweat. But I never smell.

    It's worth a shot. Took about two weeks for my armpits to get used to it (they were a bit red and burny for a bit) though

    how do you apply it?

    I tell my dh he should shave his pits too. the hair underneath probably doesn't help the problem any. he won't listen to me of course 😂

    There was a natural smell thing on a foodie page I'm on I'm pretty sure it was charcoal. Can't be 100%. I would just make him see the doctor and crap on about his diet does he want to die for the kids (that's what I tell DH) 😝

    My DH was same his armpits smelt like cat pee 😖

    Salt deodorant! Amazing stuff. You just have to put it on straight after a shower, and not re-apply if you have stinky armpits (because the deodorant will then stink) but it's so good. You just wet it, rub under your arms, and it works brilliantly.
    Coconut oil is also great, I just find the salt deodorant easier to apply (especially in summer when coconut oil is runny).

    Red meat and junk food can cause bad BO so he probably really does need to take a long hard look at his diet.

    He's a chef works 6 nights a week and blames his hours for his poor diet. I've spent years trying to get him to eat healthier but he doesn't eat at home he eats at work so he doesn't have a chance to eat what I eat. We get along better when I don't hassle him about his diet he knows it's terrible. I think because he is slim it doesn't really hit him as much then if he were overweight because of his diet.
    I would love to shave his armpits!!! I can imagine the satisfaction now!

    I have forwarded all your suggestions on to him and hopefully he will try them. We are coming into summer now and already are getting 30+ degree days.

    @Qrazelna He may have to buy new clothes more often. I notice my older gym clothes smell fine when they come out of the wash but after they warm up on my body they stink and I don't really smell too bad. So the clothes must hold a lot of the stinkiness even when they don't smell, if you know what I mean?

    Good luck! And try to get him over the fear of going to the doc! Imagine if it was something more serious...........
