Is it weird that I love my body smell? Especially down there. I also adore my smell when I sweat. Is it weird?

You're fine: I think this is perfectly healthy. People in love may enjoy one anothers' as well. We do require one another to keep body smells to a minimum, especially in the workplace. You can lose your job for 'bo' and nobody will tell you why. Olfaction (smells), memory and emotion are all handled by the same brain systems -- and a co-worker's natural scent signals may be a distraction. ...Read more

My husband is complaining that he smells like onions if he sweats he doesn't eat that many onions is this a medical issue is it a sign of an internal i?

Eccrine Bromhidrosis: The medical term for this is eccrine bromhidrosis. It is rarely due to an internal condition, but a thorough physical exam should be performed to rule out any infection or metabolic disease. If the husband is the only one who can smell the odor, then special attention needs to be placed on his nasal passages, as there may be an infection there that only he can smell. History is important too. ...Read more

Alternatively, androgens or male hormones can do this as well. There is nothing to do about that. Also, bacteria can make any moist area smell bad. An antibacterial skin wash may help. Also, try a different anti-perspirant or deodorant. ...Read more
