~ Offensive Body Odor
~I've been searching for the past two years, on many websites, trying to get information on the above subject. Although I have found a few things, I've not found any information on how to solve the problem. You're my last resort.
Almost three years ago, I noticed my body was beginning to smell like rotten meat/garbage
I don't have bad breath and see my dental hygienist regularly. I know this is gross, but I'm trying to accurately describe my symptoms, out of desperation, and hope! Back to my story...not too soon after detecting this odor, people started commenting on the smell, so I knew it wasn't just me. Anyone who has good olfactory senses don't hesitate to make a rude comment. At this juncture, I smell of feces and urine ~ I have to live with this!
I have had a sigmoidoscopy which was completely normal, and because of experiencing blood in my urine, I had a CT scan of the bladder which revealed an enlarged bladder. I'm seeing a Urologist for this condition and surgery has been advised. He has no explanation for what I call my "odoriforous" body.
I have tried drinking more water, modifying my diet, i.e., cutting out bread, milk, some fruits, adding, deleting, every kind of colon cleansing herb; it's all just becoming too ridiculous. Nothing works.
I have become a hermit because it is so embarrassing to be out in public. What bothers me most is the fact that I know I smell bad, which stresses me out, which seems to exacerbate the problem. I really believe the smell is coming out my pores sometimes. I shower twice daily and am meticulous about feminine hygiene. Strangely enough, most men don't seem to detect any odor, including my GP and Urologist, but their female staff does! Even they have made rude comments. I'll leave the office of my GP and before I'm out the door someone is spraying an air freshner where I've been. Yes, that's how bad it is. I've experienced that situation so many times I can't even count them! Now I even carry an air deodorizer, that's how paranoid I've become over all this.
I know this condition exists in other people, and feel that's it's not rare. So, help me please...I'm willing to try anything at this point!
