why does my body odor smell so bad
Ever had that moment where you wonder if you smell, well, not so great? It happens. But you can do a few things to make body odor go away. 1. Keep Yourself Squeaky Clean
Shower at least once a day, and you'll wash away sweat and get rid of some of the bacteria on your skin. Sweat by itself is basically odorless. But when the bacteria that live on your skin mix with sweat, they multiply quickly and raise quite a stink. Washing thoroughly, especially the areas where you tend to sweat, can help with body odor. 2. Use Antibacterial Soap Washing thoroughly with an antibacterial soap bar will help get rid of some bacteria, which can help with the odor. Look for the word "antibacterial" on the soap's packaging. 3. Towel Off Well Once you've showered, dry yourself completely, paying close attention to any areas where you sweat a lot.
If your skin is dry, it's harder for bacteria that cause body odor to breed on it. 4. Use 'Industrial Strength' Antiperspirants Once youвre clean and dry, use a strong antiperspirant on your underarms. These have aluminum chloride, a chemical that helps keep sweat at bay, and they often also have a deodorant in them. Use it twice a day -- once in the morning and once in the evening. You donвt need a prescription to get a powerful antiperspirant. Look for ones that say theyвre higher strength. If you think you need more help, ask your doctor about prescription antiperspirants. В 5. Keep Your Clothes Clean Change clothes often when you're sweating heavily. Fresh clothes help keep body odor down. Be sure to change your socks as well, especially if you tend to have foot odor. Use deodorant powders in your shoes, replace insoles often, and go barefoot when possible. 6.
Cut Out or Cut Back On Certain Foods or Drinks What you eat affects your body odor. Foods that tend to make you sweat more, such as hot peppers or other spicy foods, might also lead to body odor. And the aroma of foods like onions or garlic can be carried in your sweat. Drinks with caffeine or alcohol may also make you sweat more. В 2018 WebMD, LLC. All rights reserved. This kind of helped me. First it's good to have a change in diet. Cutting out dairy and meat as much as possible. Next incorporating more vegetables helped some. I then tried a product from Renew Life, called Intestinew powder (and pills). I tried the powder. I didn't notice a great change when I did all these but it was a start. I tried not stressing, (which can be difficult, and I also prayed).
Watching things on tv/internet that make you laugh is a positive in healing your insides I think. Then I tried several things including lemon juice, baking soda, garlic and organic apple cider vinegar (not all at once). I tried baking soda with lemon juice (1 spoonful in water each, about 15-30 min. apart) first and I didn't notice any great results. I then tried, smashing/cutting 1 good size clove of garlic with 6-8 oz. of water in the morning before eating anything (then either oatmeal or something else about 30 minutes after). At night 1-2 hours after dinner, I used 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar mixed in with about 6-8 oz. of water. Did this for a while (maybe 1 or 2 months) and started noticing the nose scratchers didn't scratch as often. I experimented not showering for one day and even working out the next day(sweating use to be bad) and people didn't react the way they normally would.
So far so good. I'm still using garlic and apple cider vinegar, just in case, and don't want to go back to my usual eating habits either. Maybe this will help you. If you can see a doctor (a good one, not one that'll dismiss you as crazy) they might prescribe something for your particular situation. I don't know if the intestinew was of any help. maybe it repaired some damage in the guts. Maybe not, but i'm mentioning it just in case. (some other dude said he had taken the pills in double/triple douses but I wouldn't recommend that, as people can have various reactions to taking too much. ) I know garlic was on the list of problem foods but it seemed to help me. Good luck. (don't despair,) Peace.
