Asparagus: Interesting question. Have they been eating a lot of asparagus? This can give the urine a particularly unique smell.

Body odor: Sweating is triggered by warm temperatures, exercise, physical exertion, or as a stress response to nervousness, fear, embarrassment or anger. Fluid from sweating with skin bacteria produce body odor. Express your concern to the family member and suggest seeing a Physician for possible Diagnosis of infection, Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism, or Lung disease. Then follow Treatment based upon Diagnosis.
