Sorry if just the thought of that made you less hungry!
My bride (I’m the MOH) has a predicament and we don’t really know how to ‘fix’ it.
Well…she has stained, smelly armpits….it not that bad but it makes her self-conscious. Her skin is light with yellow-olive undertones and her armpits are a few shades darker. The smelly part is not overpowering but yes…it sort of stays with her.
I have read that limes are a good self-remedy but we were wondering if you know of anything that can help her. Chemical or otherwise.
Thanks so much! She’s really freakin’ out!

She should see a dermatologist. Also, laser hair removal works wonders for that darkness.

She should try Total Nonscents with the skin lighting agent by Dermadoctor for the color and for the smell Certain DRI.
I hope that helps!

Thanks, the dermadoctor stuff sounds the best…she doesn’t sweat much so the first one’s out.

You need to consult with a dermatologist, there is a pill you can take that will solve your problem. In fact you can go a full day without deodorant or antiperspirant. I know this can be a very embarrassing moment and I feel you pain but I am sure a dermatologist can help.

If she doesnt have the means to go to a derm, I recommend trying ‘Drysol’ my friend used it as well and she said it did wonders for her, not only did she sweat on her pits, she sweat puddles out of her hands and she would use it on her hands as well and would work.
And I agree that checking out a laser might be beneficial. I hear also that botox helps stuff like that?
Good luck to your friend!

She should also probably see her regular doctor. It sounds like she might have acanthosis nigricans (dark staining pigment of the armpits and the neck which is sometimes mistaken for dirt) and can happen with conditions such as PCOS, overweight, and diabetes. (Don’t freak her out, just tell her to go see her GP).
PS- I didn’t realize this post was 7 months ago… still… I’ll leave this post up in case anyone else has the same issue.
