Hi, I seem to have a bad body odor that emanates from me no matter what I do. I take around 2 showers a day and wear deodorant and yet, somehow I still smell bad enough to cause discomfort to other people around me.
As I have had this problem for at least 7 years now, I have been trying to think about what might have caused this and I suspect that it might have to do with either of these two problems:
1) (This is pretty embarrassing to write but) as a young adolescent teen, I experimented with inserting objects in my anus. I don't know for sure, but maybe I infected myself with some kind of bacteria or fungus which is causing this smell? If it helps, the problem started about 2-3 years after I stopped doing this.
2) I have been diagnosed with Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO). Does anybody here know if SIBO causes bad odor?
I really need help and at this point I would very grateful if you could advise me about this problem. Thanks
