My life has become a living hell.
Wherever I go people make comments, give me those horrible glaces, open windows in front of me or when I step out of the room for a minute. Someone went into my room recently and teh head literally jumped back with the smell.
No one invites me out to the theatre or for a meal anymore.
You can't really blame them for being a public place. They don't want people thinking they
Doctor tells me he can't smell anything, which is completely insulting to me as it's implying that all the countless people's horrible reactions to me are in my head, which is absurd.
any sort of solution I try I don't even know if it works or not because I can never smell anything.
But i know how bad I smell because of how other people react, and it just seems to get worse as the months go by. I can smell it off my bath towels though, seems to be a strong urine smell. I've noticed that showering does me no good and seeing as my towels stink even though I supposedly onyl use them when I'm clean just shows how bad this problem is,
I'm literally trapped at home. I'm terrfied of leaving the house, as usually some "incident" occurs and I'm then just so depressed and feel like crying.
Been trying charcoal and chloropyll lately but I don't think it's working.
I honestly don't know what to do. I'm unemployed right now and can't ever see me getting a job with the smell this bad. Interviewers are going to think "no fkn way" as soon as they get hit by the smell.
I feel completely alone as my "friends" don't want to know me, and I don't really have any family. My mom passed on and I'm not close to my father.
Surfer27 here. I just read your text and I am only speculating here, but are you suffering with a disease called Fecal body odor? If you are, join the club, seems like alot of people have this problem and don't know what to do!! I am in the same boat, as these people!! I have dealt with this fecal body odor for 4 yrs now. I was just wondering, if you have looked into or tried Neem capsules before? It's an indian herb, that helps cleanse the blood, as well as cleanse the skin of any impurities and as well, to cleanse the internal organs. Let me know, if you have tried it! A couple of things, that came to my mind about your problem is, could it be related to: Candida Albicans, Heavy Metal Poisioning, or related to hemorrhoids, anal fistula, which cause fecal odors or anal incontience? If I was in your boat, I would investigate into every one of these avenues, to rule out any abnormalities within the body. So, if I can ask, what have you been checked for exactly? Have you been to a doctor, for certain specific testing? What have the doctors ruled out for you? Also, what have you tried to help alleviate your problem? One last thing, if you have tried everything on the market to alleviate your problems and still haven't gotten anywhere, have you looked into seeing a chinese herbalist yet? The reason, I am bringing this up, is because the chinese are fairly knowledgeable of certain things, that occur within the body. An acquaintance, I have gotten to know mentioned to me, that she had a bad body odor, that smelled like rotten eggs all the time and she went to a chinese herbalist and after being put on a couple of the herbs, she found some relief from taking them. Now the body odor of this woman didn't completely go away, but it did lessen. Something else you may want to investigate into, is looking into Bentonite Clay. Another person, who had fecal body odor, not gas, but actually smelling like feces throughout the day, had tried this Bentonite Clay and put 3 oz's of this into a bathtub full of water for 30 mintues and afterwards, he found that his fecal body odor had diminished quite drastically. You might want to check into this, as a way of diminishing what you have. You can find good prices for Bentonite Clay, at: http://www.BestBentonite.com.
Check it out. Okay, I have to go, but I hope that, I was of some help to you. I will talk to you later. Take care.
Hey just wanted to say I'm very sorry that you are suffering emotionally because of this urine bo. I know exactly how you feel because I go through the same thing everyday with peoples' negative reactions etc. My bo also is much like a urine odor it is horrible and it also leaves the bad smell on my towels and I can still smell it a little even after they have been washed with laundry detergent. It pretty much also stinks up any room I'm in. Try to stay strong and hope you find a solution to your bo issue. God Bless you and take care:)
Yes I am suffering emotionally, I don't see how I could not. to be honest this is a living nightmare, i can't see how anything could be worse besides being terminal.
I wouldn't wish this curse on my worst enemy, and sometimes I do genuinely think it's a curse. I don't know what I did to deserve it, either.
It just seems to get worse and worse, no matter what I try.
Today I needed to go to town so I got the train. Fine on the way down as it was quiet, then on the way back a bunch of schoolgirls got on.
They were literally spraying perfume at me.
Was just horrible. I could do nothing but keep my head down and pretend I didn't notice.
I'm currently trying charcoal and chlorophyll which is doing nothing. There is slightly less odor from my BMs but i have noticed nothing positive about my general BO. It really is a nightamre situation. I just spend all day playing videogames and watching movies.
I really wish I was out there forging a career or travelling but my problem is the antithesis for doing these things. People just think your scum. As soon as the smell hits they just resign themselves to thinking you're a lowlife, no matter who they are.
As I said, I would take almost any other condition than this.
The odd thing is I can never smell anything off my shirts. I put my head under my shirt and take a deep breath and it smells fine. I can smell my socks when my feet sweat which is normal for most people and I can smell my briefs but I can never smell "the main odor". Somethings if i leave my room and go back in quickly I can get a faint bad smell.
The only person I get into a car with would be my sister and of course the air conditioning goes up fully and windows go down. It's so humiliating it's hard to put into words. I outright make excuses if she offers me a lift as i don't want to smell her out and face the humiliation again.
It's the same if I was really stuck and needed a cab. Windows down and a deathly silence for the journey. No one wants to converse with a stinker.
Sometimes I think I brought this on myself from drinking. If it's one thing that makes me smell even worse it's beer. However I got my liver tested and it's fine apparently.
I sometimes wonder if it's just coming out of my mouth but then I smell my bath towels, and also i had a leather chair then just smelled disgusting. It was just me sitting on it and it smelled fine when i got it. I had to get rid of that.
I have just put in an order for about $100 with iherb with various deodarants(has anyone tried crystal?) and also some herbs as mentioned here. White bark, fennel seed. Also a liver cleanse course.
I hope it will help. I would have no problem spending $100 a month or more if it helped.
Over the last year or so I tried all sorts of differnet diets but they were doing me more harm than good. Red meat, gluten, sugars I gave them all up. My smell didn't improve in any case.
However I went from weighing like 150 pounds to 120 and looked like death.(5"11 male) So now I'm back eating whatever I like and am putting back on the weight.
Your liver may be congested if you have drank lots of alcohol in the past. Body odor is a common symptom of a congested liver and that may be your problem. Have you tried a parasite cleanse (barefoot's dewormer, humaworm, clear, ect.) along with liver flushing? Here is Dr. Sutter's Liver Flush recipe:
It's Surfer 27 here again. I just got your reply and I am sorry, that the chlorophyll and charcoal aren't helping you out! A couple things, I was thinking about was this. Have you ever heard of people using Hyperbaric Oxygen, to help with diseases or problems before? If you haven't, I will fill you in on what it is. Hyperbaric Oxygen, is an all natural form of oxygen, where it releases more of your bodies own oxygen supply into the your blood in your body. It's been used to help people with numerous things. If you have time, check online through google and type up: what does hyperbaric oxygen treat and also what does hyperbaric oxygen do? I don't know if this will help people with fecal body odors, like you or myself, but it never hurts to look into every possibility right? One last thing, have you heard of the valve in your body called: Ileocecal valve. I think that's how it's spelled. Apparently, some people on Curezone who had this problem with this valve, which is located in the upper part of the abdomen on the right side, said that once it had gotten fixed, their fecal body odor diminished quite alot. Through a website, called KingBio.com, they have all of these all natural products,
for stuff related to Ileocecal Valve problems and also for people, who may have overbody toxicity problems, in which for that, they have something called the ICV Clease. If you want to check this out, go to http://www.kingbio.com.
From there, go the left side of the page where it says Natural Remedies and go to Pg.8 and it will give you some information on the ICV Cleanse. The ICV cleanse costs about $19.00 USD. One last thing before I go, is to type in Body Odor, which there'll be a search engine on the top left side of the kingbio.com website. If you type in Body Odor, there will be a product about halfway down, that says Odor Free. It's suppose to help with odors internally, from what I've read. Also the odor free remedy mentions every certain ingredient put into this, if you click on the details button of the Odor Free bottle. I hope that this helps!! Let me know, if you decide to buy this stuff!!! Alright, keep in touch and I will talk to you later. God bless. Bye.
Surfer27 here. I was browsing the Curezone medication site, this afternoon and came across something interesting, that I thought might interest you. Apparently, there were two people, who like you and I, have had fecal body odors for a long time, despite all they've tried. I was looking over their posts to people and their succeesses and they mentioned these two things. One, try grinding flax seeds into a grinder, but don't grind them into a powder. Make sure they are still somewhat chopped up, when you take them out of the blender. The second thing, these 2 people tried to help get rid of their fecal body odors, was by taking this product called Rhubarb Root. Apparently, it's good at cleansing the intestinal tract, bowels and other areas. The other good thing to this Rhubarb Root, is that, it helps with constipation issues, helps with inflammation and hemorrhoids and also helps alleviate internal heat from the body and the bowel area. I just thought I'd mention some of these pointers to you, if you decide to buy this Rhubarb Root. Some of things you mentioned to me already, I have tried it and it didn't work. That is why my next step, is to try taking this Rhubarb Root and hoping, that it alleviates my foul anal odor, which smell of feces. Let me know, if you decide to look into trying this. Alright, gotta go, but I will talk to you later. Take care.
We almost got the same story. You atleast have a house and can smell your bad body odor on the towels.
Me, i live in a building so i have to deal with pissed off neighbors who slam doors and slam things. So that makes my heart beat faster and makes the body odor smell worse. How i know even though i can't smell my own body odor? well the neighbers start hiting and slaming things even louder.
It's just a f***ing nightmare like you said. If you confront them they act as if they have got no problem and everything is ok. My parents not being able to smell me doesn't help. My parents just think the neighbors are just loud. sheesh
I can't believe that I finally found someone to relate to... I am a 27 year old female and I suffer from the same living hell. I have recently had a heightened episode since I started a new life path and I am overhearing comments from my new coworkers. I cannot smell myself usually but I will catch an unpleasant whiff occasionally which makes me wonder if I am delusional and it's not even there normally. I have always been very self confident and have always attracted the opposite sex easily... but I am becoming ETREMELY self conscious. I can't even function normally anymore because I don't want to push my limits interacting with those that have made comments regarding the unpleasant smell. I toil with this because I don't want to be rude but I don't want people uncomfortable around me. I have never had anyone approach me on a personal level leaving me to wonder if the comments might be about someone else.
Has anyone found ANYTHING that works? I find the issue is more severe when I am stressed but the more research I do online, the more I'm stressed about it. There seems to be a link with stress, candida, brain fog, immune imbalance and TMAU from all of the articles.
What am I missing? Do you have any advice? I am sorry for your circumstance too. I can relate to never wishing this on anyone. Part of me feels like this is fate because I feel as though I can be strong enough to carry this weight... although that confidence has been faltering.
My name is Ryan Annunziello. I just read your posting on Curezone and wanted to respond. So, when did you first notice you had your bad, body odor? When did it start approximately? Secondly, can you describe where you think the body odor is stemming from and what it smells like? Does your body odor, smell like musty, eggy, garbagey, burnt rubber, fecal, sewage, etc, etc? Third, have you been able to talk to your family about it and when you do, how do they react to what you're dealing with? Do they realize you have a problem, or are they able to quickly dismiss it and don't want to believe that you have a bad, body odor? Well, I hope to hear back from you. If you feel comfortable in doing this, it's up to you, but I find that talking about it over the phone is easier, but that's your call!! If you don't feel comfortable calling me over the phone, you can email me, at: email@example.com. Alright, gotta go but I will talk to you later. Take care and God bless you. Bye for now.
i have the same problem and it is actualy driving me to suicide. at the moment i am taking probiotics and garlic and healthy vegetables but to no avail but what i do find helpful is drinking vast quantities of water, it doesn't get rid of it entirely but it does calm it down a bit. if i dont find a solution soon then i will resort to suicide because i cant get a job or have a social life because of it and whats the point of living if you cant have either of those. it may also be related to a yeast/fungal infection so i will have to starve myself in order find out if that is the cause. if there are any doctors reading this then i suggest that you all should address this matter with urgency. sorry i cant be of much help.
Surfer27 here. I read your message on a Curezone posting and thought I could help!! Well, I can defintely say I can relate to you. I've been going through this horrible condition with fecal body odor for 4 yrs and believe me, it's not an easy road to take!! Like you, I have totally isolated myself from the world and can no longer go out into public, because of what people say, what I hear from people and they way they treat me, as an individual!! If I can just ask a couple of questions. Okay, first off, when did you start noticing this body odor condition of yours? What age were you, when it first started happening and are you female or male? Second, what kind of body odor is it? Does it smell fishy, garbegy, musty, burnt rubber like, sour or fecal? Third, what have done in terms of tests, example, have you been to a doctor and what did he or she say to you, when you explained yourself? Fourth, what kinds of things have you tried, that have helped somewhat eliminate the odor? Have you tried changes in your diet, taking certain minerals or vitamins, etc, etc? Fifth, do you recall anything bringing this on? Was it through eating too much sugar, alcohol abuse, anal sex, etc, etc? Sixth, have you talked to people, like Mpdela here on Curezone? She's fairly knowledgeable of this kind of thing. She have 2 sons, who used to have this rare condition called TMAU. Anyhow, I know a person who used to be here on Curezone, who got rid of this body odor problem, by taking something called Hibiclens. He or she said that, after taking it, that the odor started to diminish and leave that person's body!! Have you looked into this, or even tried it before? If not, then I encourage you to do so!! I am in the process of trying this out!! Just to tell you more about myself, I am a 28yr old male. I started developing this weird problem, when I was 24 yrs old and I have tried everything mentioned on Curezone here, but the Hibiclens!! I know that with this problem, not alot of people are accepting of you, as you'd like them to be!! Alot of them, will treat you with looks of disgust, like you're dirty, they will stand far enough away from you, when in a lineup and they will also cough really loudly, like they are allergic to you!! These are some of the things, I've found and noticed, when I am around people, or they get close to me! I really do hope you find some answers because, no one deserves to live a life in isolation and embarrassment! I imagine this is what the life of a fecal incontient person is like!! They have a problem where, they cannot contro their bowels and as a result, they can sometimes have accidents, while being out in public! Thankfully that isn't the case for me, as I have good bowel tone and control, but I do feel like a incontient person regardless, just based on how people in public treat me!! If you find anything that works for you, please don't post it and leave! If anything works, keep us updated as a group and community and stay in touch with us, as what you may come across, may help someone else in the same similar experience they've had!! Okay, if you need to get in touch with some people, fecal odor checks here quite often, as do I!! There is also another person, you may want to contact and that person's username is dyingtolive. Anytime you want to chat or vent, I am here for you!! Okay take care and may God bless you!! Bye for now.
