Possible business venture?

I posted this on Facebook last night:

TMI ALERT: So now that the antibiotics and anti-fungals are out of the picture, my armpits have developed a life of their own. I shower, using hibiclens, and an hour later they smell like spicy, pungent, poisonous death. WTF? Am I now the home to some new biological weapon?

Claire says it’s an “indie-horror-flick-turned-sleeper-hit”.

I say it’s a good vehicle for revenge (i.e. holding socks under my armpits and mailing them to people I don’t like).

Rick says that it could be a lucrative business venture.


Who would invest $5.99 for me to send a biologically tricked-out note to an enemy, or as a gag gift (literally)?

Because, y’all, I’m telling you…if my tee shirts of late are any indication, I need to start mailing them to soldiers to¬† be thrown at the enemy.

In the meantime, I’m puzzling over things I can do to reduce the funk without using antiperspirants (can’t use them for a bit because of both metal toxicity and clogged pores possibly leading to more staph).

So, either way, if you have suggestions, I’m all ears.

    Since the source of the odor is bacteria give Listerine a shot. Either in a spray bottle or pour some on a wash cloth and wipe it on. And kill those germs!

    • The Hibiclens is a surgical wash, and I still have StaphAseptic that I use (it has tea tree oil and is anti-bacterial). Listerine is basically just alcohol, which will dry out the glands, irritate them, and make them more prone to sweating in an attempt to clear out the irritant. More sweat = more bacteria breeding ground.

      So…yeah. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway…heh.

  • I say you should go big or go home. All you gotta do, is slap a few extra zeros on that price, submit it as a bid for a defense contract, then BAM! You’re an instant military supplier, totally rich, and will more than likely continue to underbid the competition for years! Problem solved, problem staying solved.

    Heck, if a couple of Jewish kids from Florida can pull it off, why can’t you? Then again, I’d probably offer some stiff competition with my own dirty socks…

  • I use one of those ‘deodorant stones’ usually found in health food stores. Please note, they are not anti-perspirant. I do sweat. But, whatever it is kills the odor causing bacteria, so while moist, I’m fragrance-free!
    Hope this helps!

    Arm and Hammer (and probably some other more expensive ‘organic’ brands) has some deodorant that is aluminum free. Not too bad when compared to the high octane brands.

  • Sorry to hear that :-(
