Hey guys I have been dealing this issue for quite sometime now. I am 18 years of age, male, and will be grauating high school soon. This is my first step in actually trying to solve my problem.
What i am dealing with is an odor from my body that smells like a septic tank or ****s. When i am around people they always sniff their nose, get clogged up in their nasals, or put their hand near their nose as to not smell it. At first i was very sad and depressed about why it was me that had to deal with this problem, but after learning how to deal with it i am pretty fine about it. At this point it is just frustrating to me that my body is not the way it should be at my age. My weight is 140, i am 5' 9", and have not been diagnosed with any diseases or am allergic to anything. Over the past year i have been struggling with this because i dont want to see people around me who are not happy because of a simple thing as a smell. I want to be able to walk into a room and just know that i smell normal and i dont affend anybody. It is also pretty sad too because i cant be anyone because I am paranoid that my smell is annoying them. It is quite frustrating.
I have looked up some things online but i cant get a real answer for what might be wrong with me. I take a shower 2 times a week, wash everywhere on my body including my hair. I change clothes everyday and they smell like they just got out of the wash. My armpits dont smell. Everything about me seems pretty normal. I do know that what i eat may have something to do with why my body is releasing this stench and i could also be suffering from candida. Im pretty sure it isnt tmau because people dont ever say they smell anything fishy. I dont want to ask my mom what she thinks yet or a doctor yet because i want to see if i can solve the problem by myself without anybody noticing. I am not the type of person who would talk about their issues with people or reveal things they deal with. I just dont want to get involved in a drama type deal where it is akward and then if nothing fixes the problem you are back to step one. I just want to try figuting this out on my own first. If you need me to list more info about this problem please let me know. Please help me out!
P.S. my nose is always congested and i am 95% sure it because of my smell. I cant usually smell anything and when i can i can smell myself and its annoying.
