Armpit smells whenever I put products under there!

More information: 
I've tried all sorts of home remedies to get rid of my stubborn armpit odor, such as witch hazel and hydrogen peroxide, but whenever I put these products under my armpits, they have this distinct odor that stinks. This is also the same whenever I wear deodorant or antiperspirant. It just seems to amplify my odor even more. I can't seem to smell my own odor but I've been told that it smells like sweat or onion. I don't even sweat all that much. Is there anything I can do or try to get rid of this odor once and for all? I'm so tired of living my life in fear everyday.

Hi Grace, thanks for sharing your story. It relates to many people who come here. So know that you are definitely not alone. Reason is that the bacteria live inside the hair follicles and sweat glands, so whatever you put on top of the skin will not help to eradicate them, because it cannot penetrate. But we are working on this topic heavily and hope to offer solutions in future. Best, Chris
