Abstract

Human body odor, and axillary odor in particular, can be a factor in human communication. Natural human odors can also provide a significant source of information involving body processes. Common sources of human body odor include apocrine and eccrine bromidrosis, halitosis, and vaginal odor, among others. The most common of these conditions is axillary apocrine bromidrosis. This condition per se is characterized by excessive perspiration and excessive, usually offensive, odor emanating from the skin by the action of surface bacteria.
