See your doctor.

There are many possible causes for body odor in young children. Some are minor, but other causes can be potentially very serious. I recommend that you see your child's doctor as soon as possible to be evaluated. Good luck!

How long does eating foods like garlic, onions, curry, affect your body odor?

Sweat

Body_odor
It's the volatile sulfurous substances, including one called allicin, in garlic and onions that cause their odor to linger on for hours after we eat them. Mint and tumeric also contain volatile compounds that our bodies release through our sweat. These compounds are absorbed into our blood and our lungs after digestion, giving us not only bad body odor but bad breath as well.

How can I handle excess body odor?

Daily soapy showers

Body_odor
Body odor is caused by bacterial breakdown of sweat in skin fold areas, such as your armpits. Shower daily with antibacterial soap, and use an antiperspirant to reduce sweat production.

What would cause body odor on female that showers daily?

Moisture

Body_odor
Make sure that you are drying off completely with a clean towel. Do not get dressed until your body is dry or you may develop a musty, moldy odor similar to foot odor. Also, make sure that your towel is drying well and not developing a mildew odor that can be transferred to your body.

Can food allergies cause you some body odor?

Foods not allergy

Stringio
Foods that we eat can effect our breath and the way our body smells. Garlic, onions and curry spices all are absorbed and then secreted in sweat altering body fragrance. It's not an allergy, in fact, it's physiologic. Foods that we eat are not completely broken down in the small intestine & enter the circulation. This is not leaky gut syndrome. IgG antibodies protect us from any potential harm.

Best way to get rid of body odor?

Take a bath

Body_aches
Bathe regularly (daily), use an antiperspirant/deodorant combo on your under-arms every time after you bathe. Keep your clothes washed and dried to avoid holding body odors. Don't smoke. If the above plan is not enough, then add: Eat a low fat diet, avoid raw onions and garlic. If all that doesn't work, see a dermatologist or your primary doctor.
