Scientists got rid of the smell underarms by using a transplant of bacteria
Experts from the University of California have learned to deal with bad smell of sweat with foreign bacteria.
About the new way they said at a dermatology Symposium in Sweden.
The human body is inhabited by bacteria that can affect health, causing intestinal disorders, immunity and even brain. The skin also has its own microbiome, varies depending on body part.
Living in the armpit of bacteria produce compounds that play a role in the formation of a bad smell.
The researchers transplanted the man suffering from the unpleasant odor, bacteria from the armpits of his twin brother that did not experience such problems.
It helped get rid of the smell. Transplant bacteria was conducted about a year ago and the smell still has not returned.
The researchers conducted this procedure since I was 17 pairs of people, one of whom bad groin and the other was his close relative. 16 participants of the improvement occurred within a month and half preserved for three months or more.
“It’s still a very experimental technique, — says Callewaert. But it can work.”
