Hi - I've had a body odor problem for the last 7-8 years. I'm fairly positive it's not a hygene issue - it's not that I sweat or anything like that, the odor simply never goes away. Nothing that I've done so far has helped at all. I've taken supplements such as probiotics and zinc as well as botisol, which is a supplement that is supposed to help some causes of body odor. I recently visited a doctor and he did some tests, all of which he said were normal - (sodium=141, potassium=4.5, kidney and liver functions are normal, white blood count=7400, hemoglobin=15.2, hematocrit=44.2, platelets=296,000, urinalysis was normal, thyroid function is normal, C-reactive protein is normal) He pretty much said everything he tested for was normal. I don't know where to go or what to do now. Are there different tests that can be done? Has anyone had experience or situations like this? Any advice?-Thanks
