How to deal with severe sweating and subsequent body odour

Date: 07 Mar 2016   Posted By: souvik     Group: Doctors    Category: Dermatology   

I have a brother who is 18. He has dark circles beneath his eyes and his skin is very oily. He also has a bad odour problem and he suffered very much in summer because of his sweat. After drinking water or variation of temperature, his skin removes so much sweat (like bathing). Is there any medicine to stop this severe sweat?

This can be dealt in the following ways:
1.Taking bath twice a day; it is better to take bath before sleeping in nights
2.Using powder of moongdal as to apply instead of soap etc.,
3.Ladies in addition to the above can use turmeric powder while bathing.
On any situation, the chemical based body sprays should be avoided.

The bad odour is the result of a number of factors such as excess coffee - intake, taking of garlic and onion in the food or other food styles. The following points should be taken into consideration to get rid of bad body - odour.
1) you must take care of hairs of arm - pit since sweating in this area having excess hairs cause the bacteria to grow exponentially. These hairs should be shaved twice weekly.
2)Consumption of Apple - cider Vinegar approx one table - spoon after each meal would enhance your digestion of the foods, you take. A proper digestion of the food would emanate less foul odour.
3) You may take bath twice daily and in the water to be used for bath, add two spoon of vinegar. Acidic media of the vinegar would lower the ph value of water and as such the bacteria present on the skin will be killed.
4) Use antibacterial shop available in the market. This will take care of body - odour.
5) Consume enough water daily so that there is enough sweating. Excess sweating removes body - odour.
