Body odor is common. It may be because of too much sweating or could be a more serious condition such as an infection.

Whatever the case it can be embarrassing.

The flip side though is that there are ways to help get rid of body odor. WebMD combined a list of six ways to help with the stinky situation.

1.Use antibacterial soap

Antibacterial soap helps to reduce the bacteria count and in turn helps to reduce body odor.

2.Dry yourself properly

It is harder for bacteria that causes body odor to breed on dry skin. Make sure to dry yourself properly after taking as shower.

3.Diet

Food can also affect your body odor. Avoid foods that make you sweat a lot such as spicy foods.

Drinks with a lot of caffeine or alcohol can cause you to sweat a lot.

4.Use deodorant or antiperspirant

Antiperspirant contains aluminum chloride, a chemical that helps to reduce sweating.

Stronger deodorants can help mask the smell of bacteria on your skin.

5.Clean yourself properly

Wash yourself thoroughly, especially in places prone to sweating. This helps in getting rid of the bacteria on your skin.

6.Keep your wardrobe clean

Clothes can carry around a bad smell so make sure your clothes are always fresh especially if you sweat a lot.
