ワキガ(わきが)

I'm not quite sure why, but I love this word.  Wakiga is like B.O., as in body odor. . .The online dictionary

www.eudict.com
also defines it as "abnormal underarm odor." 

 Please be careful not to confuse this with wakige, the word for underarm/armpit hair.

Just  out of curiosity, I YouTubed wakiga and a whole lotta videos came up.  Seems like they were all about surgical procedures to reduce B.O.  I couldn't bring myself to put them on this blog.  If you want to see them, though, maybe hiragana or katakan would bring the best results.
