BROMHIDROSIS

Nutraike hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), you cannot control bromhidrosis. It’s a devastating condition that can cause embarrassment, frustration and psychological distress.

Bromhidrosis is a chronic medical condition characterized by extreme body odor. It happens when the bacteria on your skin breaks down sweat and produces an abnormally offensive smell,pone that’s more pungent and persistent than regular B.O(Body odour).Bromhidrosis stems from the decomposition of both apocrine and eccrine gland sweat.

The type are;

*Apocrine Bromhidrosis:Apocrine bromhidrosis is the most common type of bromhidrosis. When you have apocrine bromhidrosis, body odor is the byproduct of lipid-rich apocrine gland sweat mixing with skin bacteria. When these two ingredients come together, they produce thioalcohols — compounds that smell like sulfur, onions or raw meat .

*Eccrine Bromhidrosis:Eccrine bromhidrosis is the rarer form of bromhidrosis. It happens when sweat from your eccrine glands softens the keratin on your skin. The softer the keratin is, the easier it is for bacteria to break down. This break-down process produces as stenchy odor .

Most of the time, you can detect bromhidrosis from its distinct scent. The most common symptoms of this condition include:

*Constant (but not overpowering) body odor

*Body odor within 30 minutes of showering or bathing

*A cheese or meat-like smell coming from your underarms or groin

*A garlic or onion-like smell coming from your breasts, underarms or groin

*Social anxiety due to body odor

*Doctors can diagnose bromhidrosis by swabbing and testing the bacteria on your skin. *Excessive amounts of Corynebacterium, Propionibacterium, Staphylococcus and Micrococcus usually indicate chronic body odor. Staphylococcus is typically the strongest-smelling bacteria.

The causes of bromhidrosis are mainly bacteria and sweat.Other factors that causes bromhidrosis are;
