Fart Smells Like Burnt Rubber
Felt great all day, suddenly sharp pains in abs, get home and completely liquid poo and smells like burnt hair. A lot of poo, gas, and slight sweating. I haven't eaten anything that strange? Don't feel bad now.
The primary cause of strong-smelling perspiration is bacterial flora. Sweat is naturally odorless, but when it reaches the skin's surface, bacteria that normally live on the skin digest sweat and excrete the strong-smelling waste associated with smelly sweat.
Treat the bacteria and the smell goes away. ...Read more

My fart smells always. Is this normal or something wrong in my food intake? I follow a 5 meal plan and include veg & fruits.
Digestion: The way your system breaks down foods for absorption determines the waste products that need evacuation including gas. Often the gas is a result of the body's difficulty breaking down certain foods because you likely lack enzymes necessary to digest the food.
