So, the problem is a gas odor? If your gas has an odor of a rotten eggs, then this is from bacteia which decompose proteins containing sulphur. You should avoid sulphur-rich foods for two days and you'll see if it helps.

If it is like barnyard smell, this is probably from Clostridium difficile overgrowth. Diagnosis is with a stool culture test, treatment is with antibiotics.
