You may need a round of antibiotics to supress the abnormal bacteria, and doing probiotics, like eating yogurt, can replenish the normal bacteria. ...Read more

Diet and medications, prescription or over-the-counter and supplements can affect the odor/taste of sweat, urine, stool, saliva and vaginal secretions. Keep a diary of your food and drink intake, and see if the odor changes with a certain food or drink. Otherwise, get a second opinion. ...Read more
