I have had this body odor for ten years now, since high school. I used to be obsessed with hygiene, showering, scrubbing my underarms and applying deodorant up to 3 times daily. Since about a month of that continuous regimen, I developed a rancid like smell. The smell would permeate an entire room. My odor started to smell like burnt butter, rotten cheese, garbage, etc. I dont know if it was an over irritation of my armpits/ apocrine glands, but nonetheless, I have not been able to lead a normal life since and have had the same issue. Except I think its gotten worse, even though I dont shower 3 times daily anymore. Only once a day and I cant use regular deodorant anymore bc the smell becomes unbearable. Strange thing is that my friends, family and colleagues have never said anything to me. They can smell the odor at times when its bad, but thats because it permeates the room and cant believe its comes from someone. Bc it does not smell like normal body odor. I know its me bc wherever I've gone different people say, "whats that smell". My life has been miserable bc I'm so self conscious about it. If anyone knows of a cure for this, you will be my savior. Any sort of help is appreciated. As everyone knows, this is a terrible thing to deal with and I sympathize with anyone who deals with this each day.
Body odor is usually caused by toxicity. Have you done any detox? If not, you might want to do some. It's best to start by transitioning to a healthy, high-fiber diet if you don't eat that way already. The next step would be colon cleansing. To learn about this, and other ways you can detox, read "The Detox Book" by Bruce Fife, ND.
I actually eat quite healthy because thats what I thought the issue might be. But my issue seems to stem from my underarms. And this after showering and deodorizing, so it is very baffling why this happens. I appreciate your suggestions. I will look into the book.
Hello there Papi,
Surfer 27 here. Just read your post and wanted to ask, if you have looked into TMAU, because those symptoms sound fairly similar to yours. Also, I don't know if you have looked into this, but, have you thought about trying HCL Betaine Capsules or looking into Graviola Capsules, which is said, to help with the Body's Immune System? I am thinking, of trying the Graviola, because my body odor is one, that smells like feces 24/7 and I have been battling this, for 4 yrs now. I hope that my suggestions, help you somewhat and I'd look forward to hearing back from you, on my suggestions. Take care and remember, God loves you, despite what you are going through!! God bless.
Hey Ryan, I read your post and I appreciate your help. I have looked into TMAU and thats maybe what I think I have, but what is so baffling is that my bad body odor began all of a sudden in the middle of freshman year of high school. So I dont know how to explain other than I irritated my underarms and the sweat glands with so much scrubbing and deodorant usage. Also, wanted to ask, how and when did your issue start? I will continue searching for a remedy to this. Thank you again.
i have no cure for what you describe. but i know exactly what you are talking about. i suffer from the same weird garbage like smells. mine has stunk up my entire office at work. the smell of a dead rat, ive heard people say...
just remember you are not alone. it is a struggle to live everyday pretending to be normal.
it has effected every avenue of my life. i get really really depressed at times and isolate myself.
love yourself no matter what. :)
