Last year starting around the end of April I started to get this musty underarm smell very sporatically. I tried keeping track of what I ate and couldn't link it to just one thing. Milk, caffine, desserts (like pie) all seemed to give me 'the smell' at least once but not every time I consumed them. So this smell emerged about once a week or less just at random times and then in October it just stopped. I haven't had it all winter long and now back in April/May it's reared its ugly head. I don't think I've been eating anything too differently. This is why I thought it might be an outside air allergy since it comes only on certain days and certain times of the year. Anyone heard of such an allergy to milk or pollens giving bad underarm odor??? I'm so stumped! I've been trying to diagnose this myself since last summer!!

i don't know what it is, but you should use drysol. it's a prescription medicine. you just roll it on before bedtime and it freezes the sweatglands so you don't sweat. i use it and it works great.
