Re: odour problem

There is a condition called Fish Malodor Syndrome, also known as Trimethylaminuria. It is commonly shortened to TMAU. The person who has TMAU’s body unable to process a substance called choline which is something that other people’s bodies can process. This results in the person effected being perfectly healthy and normal EXCEPT that they will always smell horrible to other people. A person with TMAU may have horrible odors emanating from various parts of their body or from ALL of their body.

This may not be what you have, of course, but it is a possibility. Many doctors are not familiar with it and it therefore can be difficult to get a diagnosis.
