Is It Safe To Use 70% Alcohol Swabs On The Armpits?
at night I want to ask, I use 70% alcohol swabs every morning on my armpits, and I don’t use deodorant. Is that safe or dangerous? Thanks 🙂
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, for what purpose do you apply alcohol swabs to your underarm skin? Is it to overcome the unpleasant underarm odor?
Alcohol swabs are good for cleaning wounds and preventing them from being infected secondary by harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria. However, the application of alcohol swabs without clear medical indications, especially on sensitive skin is not recommended. Including as well as you do. The contact between alcohol swabs and skin is at risk of causing irritation, which will make your skin feel itchy, sore, reddish, bruntusan, can even swell, blister, or peel. In sensitive people, allergic reactions can also occur after the skin is boxed with an alcohol swab. There have not been many studies that prove that the application of alcohol swabs is useful for dealing with underarm odor, if this is the purpose you are using it.
We suggest that you no longer take this action for your own good. To maintain healthy underarm skin, and eliminate unpleasant odors, you can do the following steps:
Take a diligent and clean bath twice a day
Do not use clothes that are too tight and made from heat
Keep your body weight in order to remain ideal, not overweight
Do not carelessly exchange clothes or other personal items with others
Use deodorant that does not contain alcohol in your armpits
If you deal with complaints with your armpits, do not hesitate to consult a doctor directly to be given the right treatment huh ..
I hope this helps.
