hey, friend, thanks for posting your query. There are several causes for the offensive smell which come from under the breasts. The mechanism behind this is The sour odor under breasts is created by the presence of bacteria forming on the skin and being trapped in sweat in moist areas. Genetics, foods eaten, medications taken and the amount of exercise one participates in can influence the smell of a person. Ordinarily, skin is exposed to the air, which generally keeps it dry and free of areas where opportunistic organisms can establish themselves.. Few additional tips to help women to get rid of body odor and the sour smell from under their breasts. ? Bathe with unscented products. ? Dry the areas with sour odor well. ? Wash bras frequently in unscented detergent and hot water. ? Keep skin under breasts dry to prevent perspiration . thanks. take care.
