    Use deodorant, shower, scrub your pits whilst you're in there...up your shower rate to 1 daily at home as opposed to 1 every other day; that's all you can do.

    Do you also find that you sweat a lot? By a lot I basically mean do you physically feel or see sweat on yourself? If so, it's probably the sweat that's the issue. You can try various deodorants and antiperspirants, but what I suggest is popping to a pharmacy and just asking them what they suggest. There are strong antiperspirants which you can pick up from pharmacies that work wonders.
    Other things you can do to help reduce sweating are wear loose clothing (especially around the armpits), not wear too many layers, have generally decent fitness, not overexert yourself when you don't want to be too sweaty etc.
    As long as you aren't smelly after showers you don't really need to change anything, but I would suggest warm showers followed by cooler before you get out (the warn opens up and cleans glands and the cool closes them up again) and avoiding any products in armpits or where you feel like you sweat a lot (they can block and irritate glands).

    If that doesn't work or you don't think that sweating is the issue it's probably worth popping to your GP to ask about it. Things like this are usually actually a simple fix, but people are just too embarrassed to or don't know they can see a dr about it.
