I am 16 years old and i've had this problem for about a year now. I was very cool and popular by kids in my school. Around January of that time, i began to notice people holding their noses around me. I thought their noses just itched. Then i began to hear people say...'that kid smells like feces'. I was like no way and was paranoid about it for like 4 weeks. After it was confirmed to me that i really do stink by my friends, I had to transfer shools just to get away from it. It followed me to the other school, where a bunch of kids planned to jump me because of it. I shower everyday, i eat meat and turkey, i use degree deodorant and cologne, sometimes i sweat alot (even after i use deodorant), i wipe well and i hold in my ****s because, well... that's embarrassing to do in public. Can somene please help me! i don't want my entire high school years to be a mess. I'm so insecure and i think everyone laughs at me behind my back.

  • I watched a show tonight on television about a teenager with the same problem! It is on Discovery Health; look on their website. I can't remember the name of the syndrome, but it is a digestive problems, and certain foods make it worse. It is tested for by collecting urine for 24 hours, and testing it for certain properties. You can help your symptoms/smell by changing your diet. There is no cure right now, but you can control it with your diet. Don't give up! And don't be embarrassed. Look on-line right now. The episode aired on Discovery Health channel on March 22, 2010. Good luck!
