Unpleasant smell

I have an embarassing condition that has gone on undiagnosed through many medical disciplines. The unpleasant reaction that I observe fis from all those around me. The reaction is that people cover their nose, cough, their eyes get watery, as well as redness that covers their face. They actually appear to get a reaction from what I think is my exhaled air. This occurs as soon as I enter a room and is consistent in every social situation I encounter. I also have a nasty metallic taste in my mouth that is never relieved through brushing, flossing, and mouthwashes. They actually seem to make it worse. I have excellent dental hygiene as I have been told many times by my dentist that my teeth, gums, and hygiene are all excellent. I even visited a periodontist and received a healthy assessment. My dentist reports I donot have halitosis. A gastrointologist has not discovered any remedy nor diagnosis that could be causing it. I did visit a pulmonologist, a cat scan was ordered, sinuses were clear and so were the lungs. I did vist a ENT who indicated there was a cyst in the sinus area and also a deviated septum. He could not tell me if this was the cause, but said surgery for both could possibly solve it. Many vists to a naturopath has resulted in no solution, several intestinal, colon, herbs, but no relief. Also several blood tests ordered revealed nothing. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
