I noticed this two days ago. I stink, even in the shower.
Iíve washed myself very throughly several times since; still the Body Odor persists. I havenít actually asked anyone about it, since I donít mingle with people all to often. But I can definitely tell for myself that I smell terrible all-of-a-sudden. This has never happened to me before, and Iím almost positive I havenít changed my lifestyle in like a decade.
I donít exercise regularly, but I do work outside in the hot sun every few days. Afterwards, Iíve showered every time.
Iím male, almost 24-years-old, about 5 feet 6 inches, and my scale is saying 102 lbs for some reason (Iím pretty sure I weight at least a little more). So anyway, Iím thin and not hairy in unusual places.
And Iím most likely less hygienic than I ought to be (though I do wash my hands all the time), but as I said, Iíve never stunk before.
The food I eat may have shifted recently, since my dad (the master of the kitchen!) was hospitalized eleven months ago. But thatís more of a reduction. Iím pretty sure I donít eat anything new.
What I do eat, I can probably list most of:
Ramen noodles, hotdogs, pizza, canned soup, sandwiches (baloney/ham/cheese/mustard/mayonnaise), crackers, granola bars, pop-tarts, carrots, celery, cheese, peanut butter, cucumbers, salads, cookies, and fast food (burgers/fries)... thatís all I can think of. Maybe tuna, eggs, or cereal sometimes.
And then I donít drink much. Lots of tea, water, and (rarely) milk or sodas.
I donít drink or smoke, or do any drugs.
Thatís all I can think to list about myself. And to stress, I really doubt any of that has changed at all in years. I just donít eat the large variety of meats and homemade soups that I used to with my dad around.
Maybe the smell reduces marginally after a shower, but maybe my nose is just filled with soap. The smell has certainly never left me entirely, though. Not for two whole days.
Itís almost as though getting my clothes (t-shirt, shorts, usually socks) back on immediately returns the odor, and I stink all over again. And of course those clothes are absolutely clean, every time.
My bedding has not been washed recently, and never often; but Iím at least clean when I go in there. But I know that doesnít make it clean, so Iím taking care of that tomorrow.
Thatís all there is to tell. Itíll be day three tomorrow, and Iím definitely pretty panicked over this.
So if anyone can help me out. Please give me suggestions on what I should do. If anyone has a similar story, and know what worked for them.
Iím not expecting an instant cure... but for now Iím not at all sure how I should go about fixing this.
