Are you serious? That's an answer? My 10 year old could give same. Take a shower, wear deodorant, clean clothes???

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

The apocrine glands are mainly responsible for body odor because the sweat they produce is high in protein which bacteria can break down easily.

Bathing daily, using deodorant, and changing clothes (more than once a day) might help.
