Avoid spicy foods like indian curries, garlic and fish which can cause sweating and body odor.

Personal Hygiene. Maintaining good personal hygiene is essential in controlling and preventing excessive sweaing. Take a shower daily and scrub well. Wear light clothings made of 100% natural fabrics such as cotton, silk and/or wool whenever possible to help keep cool.

Sage tea. If you are suffering from excessive underarm sweating, washing your armpits with this tea leaves you feeling very fresh and clean. Brew it, wash your sweaty armpits and you are done.
