Is it true that poor personal hygiene may be beneficial to good health, as in creating a better immune system?

Untested

Immune_diseases
A current popular theory among some doctors is that we raise our children in too sterile and protected an environment. Because of this they are not exposed when very young to a variety of allergens which keeps the immune system healthy and focused. They then consider this might be the cause of some diseases later in life, especially asthma.

What are some causes of poor personal hygiene or neglect?

Changes in hygiene

Dementia
If this is a change in behavior from usual, the person could be depressed -- showing little interest in, or energy to attend to, grooming. Another possibility is psychosis, because the person may be hearing voices telling him or her not to take baths -- or attention is distracted elsewhere. A third possibility is dementia. Please see your doctor for help getting to the bottom of these changes.

Some conditions like depression and others are associated with poor personal hygiene. You might consider a psychiatric or psychological evaluation to discuss your concerns. If you are dealing with a mental illness, it will be hard to change your personal habits without also treating your condition. Best wishes.

What causes poor hygiene? Is it depression or something else?

Poor hygiene

Poor_hygiene
People who are depressed may stop caring about themselves and motivation levels may drop so low that they stop taking care of basics like hygiene. When this occurs, it is usually a red flag that medical intervention really is needed.
