Hello everyone. so i started masturbating a year ago and since then, i have developed a very bad and strong odor especially in the chest area. can masturbating contribute to body odor? what can i do to prevent it? i'm sick of people avoiding me?

There doesn't appear to be any association with body odor and masturbating.....unless one does not shower/bath frequently. Sometimes strong body odors are @hormones and development during adolescence. A good soap, possibly an antibacterial one , might be helpful along with an antiperspirant/deodorant. Following a routine of proper hygiene will be most helpful.

I agree w/Doctor Katz's excellent advice. Also, if you are not circumcised, are you retracting and washing under your foreskin? Peace and good health.
