Body Smells and stuff

I'm a 52 year old who has NEVER had an issue with smelly body.
Shortly after moving to this home, I started feeling like I had creepy crawling things on my face and arms.
That has since passed but now I am facing a couple other issues.
First, quite often my scrotum will itch like crazy, now I can sometimes smell a nasty odor coming from not only my crotch, but also my entire upper body.
It is most prevalent when I am warm and starting to sweat. I can also smell like fecal matter just before a bowel movement.
I initially blamed the itchiness to the water softener system that our new home has, thinking that the salt may have an affect on my skin.
In any case, it is very difficult for me as I work around a lot of people and find myself trying to not get close to anyone.
Any one else share this or any thoughts on what could be going on?

Thanks!!!
