I have tips to tame body odor from dermatologist Lauren Eckert Ploch, from the American Academy of Dermatology:

Tip #1: If you tend to stink, wash your armpits with facial acne wash. Because sweat won’t smell until it mixes with the bacteria on your skin. But washing your underarms with products containing benzoyl peroxide will reduce skin bacteria and improve body odor. 

Then: Out of deodorant? In a pinch, hand sanitizer or alcohol will kill the bacteria that cause B.O., and stave off any potential stink for awhile. But if you’ve just shaved or waxed, skip it. It’ll sting like crazy
