It is not possible to determine from the information provided the exact cause of the smell you describe. I would first recommend you discuss your symptoms with your doctor. You may want to undergo a medical examination to determine if there is a definable cause of the smell you experience. I understand body odor may not be the cause of your symptoms, but below are a few tips you may consider:

You should be on a schedule to shower at least once daily, as this will be helpful to wash away the bacteria that can accumulate on your skin. It is the bacteria that causes the majority of the odor when we sweat. For this reason, you should try using an anti-bacterial soap when showering.

Make sure to dry thoroughly after showering, and you can apply deodorants, antipersperants, and/or topical powder such as baby powder which can be applied to moist areas. If you find over the counter antipersperants are not working, your doctor may prescribe prescription strength antipersperants.

Be sure to wash your clothing frequently, and be mindful of any household odors that may accumulate on clothing as this may be a potential cause of odor, such as household smoke, or pets to name a few. You may also consider cutting back on odorous foods such as onion or garlic as these can result in odor when you sweat.
