What Causes Metallic Body Odor
Different things: I'd like more information. Is this an odor that's been persistent, or just appeared recently? Is this an odor that only you're aware of, or other people have noticed? Do you have any other medical diagnoses (such as diabetes)? Barring common issues such as hygiene or diet changes, some causes of a new sour odor include hormonal imbalance or possible infection.
Bromhidrosis: The chief cause of body odor is a small bacterium which is said to be gram-positive. This bacterium grows in the axillary or arm pit regions of the body as well as the groin and other areas. Since it is the main culprit in bromhidrosis or as we commonly know it b.O., it is wiser to use a topical antibiotic that any of the other solutions available over-the-counter.
Moisture: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
I have developed severe body odor with no apparent/obvious/clear medical cause. Everything I've tried isn't working. What's the last resort?
Diet changes: Diet changes can affect body odor. Examine what has changed- you may be eating more of something than before or added something new. Also consider consulting a chinese medicine practitioner as something is imbalanced and chinese medicine can be very effective in rebalancing the body.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Pepper spices generally don't but several other "spices" do. Turmeric is one major one. Cumin can too. But if you practice good hygiene and use deodorant, you should be ok. That shouldn't stop you from consuming them though. Turmeric, for example, is excellent for health. It's been shown even in western research to fight cancer and infections.
Don't try it: Taking zinc tablets isn't going to make your armpits smell any better. Your job is at risk if you stink, and they will fire you without telling you why. The 'pop' claim that mainstream deodorants are terrible for you was made up by crooks.
Many women...: ...Report that they smell different after having a baby. Presumably that is due to one of the many hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. It is nothing to worry about.
Several caused: These include diabetes, liver or kidney disease. People who eat a lot of curry or garlic can also have a problem in.
Since I don't: Know what your body odor smells like over the internet, it's impossible for me to answer. Ask one of your friends or relatives the same question and I'm sure you'll get a better answer than I can give you.
I had class with this female who smells so bad, that it fills up the classroom. I want to what exactly causes body odor to fill up a room?
Poor ventilation: Otherwise the body odor would have dissipated. Body odor can be due to poor basic hygiene, disease, food, medication or other factors.
