My husbands socks and shoes started to really reek. It was so bad you could smell it coming from a closed hamper. I slipped probiotics and silymarin into his vitamins and it went away within a couple of days - amazing! He also had some dandruff, so I think he had a mild yeast/fungal problem. He is otherwise quite healthy, so that small adjustment fixed him up asap. So, yes, I believe it is possible that odor is candida related. I also can now get by with an enzymatic deodorant from the health food store instead of aluminum antiperspirants, so my odor level has gone down too w/ treatment.
