In brief: Get examined

It is important to know if anyone else detects the same odor? If not, then there may be something wrong with your nose, sinuses , or even the brain which is distorting your sense of smell.
If others also smell it, then you may try changing your diet by removing all strong spices, onion, garlic for a week and see if this helps. If not, talk to your doctor. If you sweat a lot, try antiperspirant.
