possible cure for bromhidrosis

I found some info on a study undertaken to cure bromhidrosis.

Combatting underarm odor by the means of microbial ...

“”Two important bacterial groups occur in the axillary region: Staphylococcus spp. and Corynebacterium spp. Corynebacterium is known as the main contributor of Body Odor . Microbial transplantations in combination with Antibiotics were applied to reduce Corynebacterium abundances. This treatment led to an enrichment of Staphylococcus species and an improvement of the hedonic values of the Body Odor . Comparison between the treated group, that receive both Antibiotics and microbial transplantations, and the placebo group, that only receive Antibiotics , led to a significant higher increase in Staphylococcus in the treatment group. This study offers good prospects to permanently cure patients who suffer from bromhidrosis and it warrants further investigation on long term effects of microbial axillary transplantations

So basically they shaved and sterilised the armpits of a study group of people with bromhidrosis, then they swabbed the armpits of relatives of these people, who had higher concentrations of the good type of bacteria, then they transferred this to the bromhidrosis sufferers and it appears to have worked. Obviously not quite as simple as it sounds, read the paper to see how it was done.

Also for info The university of Ghent apparently completed a similar study on armpits and feet, but didn’t see a result posted.

If this works, I wondered if it would be possible to sterilise your own armpits and feet with Hibiscrub (can buy in chemist, used in hospitals) then get a relative to swab their underarms and feet with cotton wool. Put this swab in a sterile jar for a couple of days then rub onto your sterilised armpits and feet. Might need to be done a few times before bacteria settles on the skin. Also don’t think you could wash the areas for a couple days to let bacteria settle.
