Hey Atlanta, I remember your posts and thank you for experimenting early on :)!
I use the mind-numbing amount of 20 drops of Grapefruit-Seed-Extract
with Sea Salt
(about a tsp.) in about a cup and a half of water. After a few days of this, you get used to the pain. Seems the earlier ones hurt more and now it feels like jumping intl a swimming pool-that rush of water.
There are a few ways to use it under pressure. I have read you can buyan actual machine (I guess like a water pick?), then there is what I use--a squeeze water bottle, and you can also get squeeze droppers/bottles from the pharmacy. I think there are a few brands Afrin? and Neilmed.
I couldn't smell my fecal odor-but once I got that under control, I noticed strong bo from all over: urine, feces (even after being on fodmap diet for a year), underarms, facial sweat, and scalp odor. Being around it all the time, I guess I got used to it so I didn't know what everyone's problem was. I rely heavily on others reactions and people are not shy about telling me I smell at work. They never had the nuts to tell me to my face but would complain about it loudly to one another.
People at work are suprised now. Like after a year I finally took a shower--and you know what it is like--shower 3 times a day...super clean etc. Never leave the house unless I just showered,etc. People suck but I have no complaints for about a week now.
