When your body gets hot the porers open up to release perspiration. perspiration itself does not cause body odor. But it occurs when bacteria come in contact with perspiration. bacteria grow easily on the skin when it is warm and moist. Thorough washing with soap and water daily slows bacterial growth and helps fight body odor. Deodorant and antiperspirant can also help wash the body odor or reduce the amount of perspiration. But remember, daily washing or bathing is still the best way to prevent body odor.
