Oh my goodness! I [searched for] onion body odor and got your question... The same thing is happening to me! For like a month now my urin has smelled like faint onion. Then as you said, I have always had mild body odor at best (like after a really good workout) and all of the sudden my under arms smell like onion! Not a gross onion... just like as if I were to put onion and celery in a pot of boiling water. Weird I know! I have done nothing different, no diet changes, no wait loss or gain, no less water or more water, no change in vitamins, nothing! I dont get it! I am not sick or anything (as far as I know
I even made my sister, daughter and husband smell! They say the same... straight up onion (and my husband says w/ celery). I am a 35 year old female in Dallas. Anyone have any input on this? Thanks!
