Smelly Skin - Omega3
This may be the wrong board to post this in but I hope someone can answer this. Several weeks ago I started taking Fish Oil concentrate on my doctors orders. He never said how much to take, so I followed the amounts on the bottle (1000mg 3 times a day). Everything was ok until today! I went out for a little while this morning (it's very hot here) and I kept smelling a peculiar odor. After awhile, I realized it was me!! The smell of the fish oil is coming right through my pores - my skin STINKS! It doesn't smell fishy, but it smells like fish OIL and it is very unpleasant. I went right into the shower and scrubbed and it was fine as long as I stayed in the air conditioned house. I went out to water plants, and less than 5 minutes later, I smell it again. This is not the first time I have been in the sun/heat since I started taking these things - I go out nearly every day, with no smelly affects. What my question is, is have I built up so much in my system that it comes out when I sweat, am I taking too much? The reason the doctor wants me to take it is because my cholestrol is a tad high, but not high enough to warrant regular medication. He also says the benefits of the fish oil outweigh any side effects. I recently read that this is the ONLY thing President Bush takes and he is extremely healthy. I can't believe he goes around smelling like this though. The doctor is on vacation now, so I hope someone on this board will be kind enough to share any info they might have on this subject.
