Lactose Intolerance and Body odor

I heard that lactose intolerance can cause odorr like fecal in the body, due to the foods not being digested properly in the intestines and causing sulphur smelling gases, is this true?

Hi,
Lactose intolerance causes frothy explosive diarrhea.It does not cause fecal odor of the body.
Sulphur smelling gases are formed only when protein is not digested well and not in lactose intolerance.
