My husband is 73; many years older than I. He has an offensive body odor -- kinda sour, old garbage smell -- though he showers daily and this is not from bad breath; it's body odor. He has always had a particular body odor; however, in the past few years it has become stronger. His clothes, bedding picks up this sour smell. I think he is aware of it somewhat, but I hestitate to discuss it with him. Is this a normal part of aging? Or a sign of cancer or other ailment? Thank you.
