Disgusting confession . My armpits smell like onions. Sucks! Even if take a bath daily, especially when I sweat a lot, oh my God, I hold my breath sometimes not to smell my armpit. I do not know what is causing this smell. When I shave my armpit, the strong odor comes out if I sweat. They said, I just have to drink a lot of water, apply some lemon. Ya, of course hydration. The lemon works though, but I can't remember to put them most of the time. But I'm just wondering why do some people who have underarm odor pretends as if they didn't smell that infact they smell like rotten fruit. If I myself knows that I'm smelling and I'm very uncomfortable with it specially when I'm dressed up and with my friends. It's so embarrassing really! How can I get rid of this rusty smell I do not know.

    Yeah, and most deordorants have aluminum in them which permeates into your body... :P I go to a natural foods store for groceries and buy the deodorant that doesn't have aluminum in it... even the rock deodorant has aluminum in it... Not sure how to get rid of onions though... do you eat a lot of spicy foods... with garlic, even onions? --What about essential oils? like lavendar, or something?

    If you ever figure out what causes that I would so appreciate it. I have a 15 yr old who has the same problem and I have tried everything, she literally has to wear mens sportswear because the girlie stuff is not strong enough.

    see your doctor. I think there is a medication available to help you. You are not alone. If I'm not mistaken, it's a vitamin or chemical definciency in your makeup that's not unusual. It can be cured by medication. Try not to be embarrassed or ashamed. There is help.

    You wont believe this. I work for a medical spa and on my lunch breaks I would have the hair under my arms lasered off. You have to do this 4-5 times because it only works during a certain stage of your hair follicle. I let the new guy do it so he could have practice. He ended up buring off my sweat glands. Now I hardly use deordorant because I have an extremely mild smell to me. The laser treatment is not painless but it only hurts for less than a minute. It's better than dealing with a constant dilemma. Try to find someone who will use a laser to burn off your glands.

    I've noticed this too, seemed to happen just as I've started back exercising regularly -- an onion-esque smell increasing. I eat onions but not that much. I figure it's just a similar combo of minerals or something. But since it happened as I started exercising, I figure it's a good thing. Anyway, I apply an agreeable deo (NOT deo/ANTIpersp) a few times a day.

    Does anyone know for certain if there is a medication for this. Both of my daughters have this problem. I have tried looking on med sites and there is no mention of anything like that.

    Take a bath with Epsom Salts. I had this for over a year. Tried EVERYTHING... prescription anti-persperants, lemon, alcohol, baking soda, all the OTC deodorants. the Internist and Demonologist both thought I was nuts. Foot deodorant managed the smell. But then I discovered that taking a bath with Epsom Salts -- Lavender Scented Epsom Salts - TOTALLY CURES IT. Your pits will sting like hell for a minute, but then the onion smell is GONE. For me it lasted about six weeks, then I just took a another bath with the Salts and wala! Gone like magic. Good luck!
