Hi guys just want to chime in. My situation is almost the same as yours Surfer. I may wake up with little or no smell at all but as soon as I go to the toilet the smell arises. Not always though. It happens the most when I have some sugar. This makes my odor the worst along with alcohol(which I have stopped drinking now). The worst smell happens almost always toghether with looser or not normal stools. Sometimes I get a little easier days. For the past 2 weeks Ive been drinking homemade kefir. I think it helps a little, but only when i eat no sugar. My bo is not always fecal. Sometimes it smells like sweat with something funny added to it. But that's because I sweat A LOT from my armpits. Just like you, it happens the most around people and especially at school. I'm a hs student so you can imagine what I'm going through. Also my sweat itself stinks. Smell appears at the same time as sweat appears. It's not the bacteria on the skin. Another thing is that some foods I eat come out of my pores and sweat. Like meat for example or soup. I have candida, pretty bad I guess. Almost entirely white coated tongue. Kefir doesn't seem to reduce it at all. I think candida is the cause of our problem. Ive had this problem for at least 3 years. Suicidal thoughts are nothing new to me... I'm going to the doctor next week, I'll try to get stool test done and maybe colonoscopy.
