This has been going on now for about two years. When I did the first test the doctor said I`ve not been drinking enough water. But that can`t be the reason now. And I noticed that the odour worsen when I put clothes on. I`ve done every thing: bath twice a day ( always have ), change diet, not wearing one clothes twice, but nothing has changed; it`s actually getting worse so much so that it`s threatening my employment. Please what can I do? Is there any drugs I can buy? this is beyond anti-perspirant stuff. Let me add that, generally speaking, I`ve always been a healthy person and I neither smoke nor drink alcohol. Thanks

ThanksIt could possibly be fish-odor syndrome, aka trimethylaminuria. It happens when you lack an enzyme to break down the amino acid, and it's the key chemical that gives fish that fishy smell when they break down. Try googling it and avoid the foods that break down and give off the chemical.

  • My son had that problem. He was and still is an athlete, until one day I stumbled onto a site that cured his problem. Do you use deodarant soap or antibacterial? Ditch the deodarant soap and use strictly antibacterial. The sweat and oil from our bodies produce bacteria that seems to thrive in our clothes. When the 2 combine it makes a really foul odor. It will take a few weeks to get the results and don't use a cheap laundry detergent. I used Tide to get the smell out of his clothes but like I said it will take about 3 washings at least. His clothes no longer hold the smell and he smells pretty good too!Good Luck.

  • Got to Whole Foods. Buy some Acidopophus Pearls ( This is the only brand that will work)It is in a blue package. They look like little pearls.Chew 2 of them. They work better and faster for body odor if you just chew them.Do not drink hot or warm liquids for about 15 minutes.Your body odor should go away within 2 hours.Also putting Collidal Silver in your arm pits will take the odor away but you really don't want it in the first place , hence, chew the pearls.
