Someone please help me i have been experiencing hell for the past 4 months ive never in my life had an issue with BO until 4 months ago where i started having a really strong "smelly,stinky" smell as what people would describe. Im asian with the gene for little to no body odor. since that is the case, is it a metabolic disorder? have been to many doctors and all they said was that they couldnt smell anything or nothing can be done. my family cant smell it at all. If it was at full force they would smell it a little but they would say its such a small matter im being way too paranoid. My mum even thinks im mentally ill. im not sure since i cant always smell it but i think my BO is sweat triggered. Since that was the case i suspected it was bacteria or fungi. However NOTHING HAS WORKED DESPITE TRYING EVERYTHING. im getting more and more depressed each day. My family thinks im crazy, my friends think i smell and the general public thinks im smell too.
As long as i sweat, EVEN A TINIEST BIT, i would get reactions from people especially in air conditioned rooms. I tried apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, overdosed on my probiotics(112.5billion), overdosed on zinc, grapefruit seed extract liquid form, all sorts of deodorants and antiperspirants(clinical, natural) tried candida diet but not for long. Couldnt take it. Tried soaking myself in dettol, iodine, hand sanitizers, wipes, antibacterial soaps even for head and more i cant even remember them now.
the thing is, NOTHING IS WORKING!!!! Okok this is probably the worst part,i dont even know where the smell is coming from. most of the times i cant smell it but sometimes when i can, it is on my neck. But i have already done so many antibacterial stuff on my neck so WHY??! my mum doesnt even want to bring me to the doctor anymore since all the past ones said it was in my mind. IF IT WAS, then why do i get reactions EVERYWHERE I GO?! Everywhere i go, people had to comment it stinks and everywhere i go people would start sniffing, touching and covering their noses.
to sum it up, i have gym class FIRST PERIOD and we are NOT ALLOWED TO BATHE so i would stink the class everyweek which is horrible. my class is airconditioned to make matters worse and it is really small so the smell travels really quickly.
Sometimes i would find that the smell has subsided a little and i smell a sweet kinda smell instead. Im not sure what others smell though. Despite this sweet smell, it is usually a very piercing strong pungent smell. Not ammonia, not fishy. i do not think i have TMAU and im pretty sure i do not have diabetes as i do not eat that much sugar or carbs.
IM SO SORRY THIS WAS SO LONG im just so desperate now and feel like killing myself everyday. i have tried overdosing alot to no avail and skipped alot of school if i continue to skip more they would kick me out but everytime i go to school i become suicidal. Please help me :(((
oh and the smell seems to linger ONLy around my neck,face,maybe head area. Sometimes the ends of my hair would stink. but my armpits do not smell at all.
