Armpit Bacteria Analysis

Hello Dr.Armpit, I was wondering if I can ask my doctor to do a skin analysis of my armpit bacteria. I do have eczema and I wonder if it contributes to having more bacteria in the armpit. My feet also smell and so do my breasts...I did Miradry but without any results...thanks!

Hi Mermaid, thanks for your question. Sequencing of bacteria is a relatively new thing. You can order a kit online. I can for instance say the American Gut Project provides this service; so do many other companies. You can order this here: https://fundrazr.com/americangut?ref=ab_0hYiLSBpT4U0hYiLSBpT4U. This will give a good impression of what bacteria colonize your skin. Best, Chris
