- Kill off your armpit bacteria by applying a few days (weeks?) long therapy comprised of several different agents: a strong antiseptic, MRSA decolonizing mouthwash, a few hours later followed by an antibiotic cream, a few hours later followed by an antifungal cream, a few hours later followed by a cream based on Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) - you get the picture, the therapy would be spaced out and use different over the counter agents that would cumulatively prevent resistance-building in the existing armpit microbiome.
- Find a donor who never smells bad. Even if they don't take showers in between work-outs. Have them wear a sterile cotton-based pad under their armpit for a few hours to inoculate it with their armpit microbiome.
- Wear the inoculated pad overnight to seed the "good" bacteria under your own armpit.
- Keep repeating for a few weeks.
