foul smelling flatulence all time
This discussion is related to Uncontrollable gas - foul smelling.


Hello everybody,

I have just encountered this site and felt little bit confident after knowing that I am not alone, and people are on way to their solutions. I hope I will solve my problem too.

I am 27, male, software engineer, Germany. I am having this problem for around one and half years and still I did not find any solution.

I release gas all the time, I don't smell it but all people around me hold their noses, scratch their face.  So it is obvious to me that the gas I release smells. Not only that, my breath also stinks. regardless of how good I brush and how long I brush, my breath stinks. So people are thinking that I am a nasty guy who do not brush and fart always.

I was emotionally forced to leave my job because of this problem, because whenever somebody comes to our office room, they complain that it smells like sewage and my colleagues stare at me suggesting that I am the reason. My colleagues discuss internally that I am the reason for the company losses because clients are not showing interest to come to our office.

I left my job and went to different doctors, they all hear to me, they don't consider it serious, they do only some routine tests like blood test and ultra scan. They will find nothing negative in the tests and come to a conclusion that it is infection caused by bacteria and give some antibiotics. But none of them helped me. Even in colonoscopy, nothing negative showed up. I took activated charcoal pills too, it did not help. I have used flat-d underwear, it did not stop my foul smell. doctors checked my anus through finger and told me that there is no damage near the anus.

I even went to homeopathy doctor, she told me it could be bacterial infection and gave some medicines but they too did not help me.

symptoms and observations:

I feel that I release more gas when I sit.
I have some sort of mild burning sensation near my left chest after eating.
I release foul smelling gas whether I eat or starve.
I have wetness near my anal region.
My breath also smells bad.

tests done /results
Blood test                            :  no problem found
Ultra scan(routine abdomen)   : no problem found
Colonoscopy                        : no problem found

I don't know what to do now. I got a job in USA now, planning to go to USA in 2 months and desperately want to find a solution to my problem before going to USA.

Can anybody throw some light on my problem?

Thank you very much in advance.

I hope we all will find some solution to this life ruining problem.

Along with this gas, do you experience low cramps?  My situation is no gas and cramps.. then sometimes when I have these cramps, if I can pass gas, it will go away...  These cramps are all new to my experience with IBS?

I think it's a good idea to talk to your family members about your chronic gas problem.  Because, some gas problems and other medical conditions may run in the family.  Some of your other family members for example, your mother, grandmother, or sister etc, may have experienced the same problem.  So, they may be able to give you information on products that they used to combat this problem, or be able to give you answers to understand what type of problem you are really dealing with, because some issues are generational, and this can save you a lot of time, energy, and problems etc. I know that this problem is so embarrassing and it's hard to share this type of problem with others, and sometimes we may try to deal with these issue by ourselves, but if you have suffered for years and years and haven't found a solution, it's time to get some help, forget about the embarrassment, because it's more embarrassing to continue with this problem, without a solution  .Hope this helps.

Bad breath comes from not flossing. the food that get between the teeth is what makes your breath stink. Next time you floss smell the floss you will see.I raise with peroxide after I've floss than I brush. I also take a towel a dry towel and wipe my tounge to clean it. My gas just started this week.and it smells so bad .I think its the veggies I'm eating.

Hey guys, this sounds like LEAKY GUT SYNDROME, have a read up on this, especially LEXII. The antibiotics have nullified the good bacteria in your gut, paving way for a CANDIDA overgrowth. In turn, one of the side effects are this leaky gut syndrome in your large intestine. Doctor's DO NOT recognize this problem and are not taught this in med school, and do not believe it because so far no one has been able to prove it, but showing signs are out there and it is only a matter of time.

LEAKY GUT SYNDROME is what most are dealing with!!! READ ABOUT IT AND CANDIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can get it at the health food store, but make sure that you get the "Oil of Oregano, Oreganol Wild hand picked P73", this is the best and purest form. You can put 1 -2 drops in a glass of water and take before a meal to see if it helps you.  However, if you have gas all the time after you eat any foods, make sure you try a good digestive enzyme with each meal, because when your food doesn't digest properly in the body, the food will rot in the body, and that's what causes the foul odors.

I also think that sometimes this problem may also be connected with stress.If you have tried everything and nothing works.  Consider what you were doing before the bad gas started, what changed in your life?  For example, were you working a stressful job,, working long hours, was there a major change of your life or routine, etc?  Our bodies aren't built to constantly handle stress.  If we live with stress day in and day out for months and years, this can cause all kinds of problems to the body. We have to make sure that we find inner peace,,eat a healthy diet, get proper rest, drink plenty of water, exercise, and be good to ourselves. Also, keep a food diary and try to pin point the foods that causes the gas problems, then eliminate them. A poor diet over a period of time can also cause digestive/gas problems.You may have to continue to try different things until you find the answer, and never give up!!

I am dealing with candida overgrowth right now and oh what a battle. I agree doctors will not acknowledge this but it is a real condition that if treated properly I believe will be remedied. I had severly foul smelling gas and since I have elimited sugar( for the most part) from my diet it seems much better...but when I do break down and have a doughnut or something sweet...there is that terrible smell again. Good Advice

Hi, I read your post and it relates to me so much. I'm a female college student also and I have constant gas/odor problem, its caused a lot of depression in my life. It happens mostly when I sit down and sometimes I'm not aware of it either. I often feel trapped because of this. And I just wanted to know how you were holding up? Did you find a solution that has helped you?

I've had an odor/excessive flatulence problem for 7 years now. And when I say it has made my life very depressing, its not an exaggeration. My life is completely dreadful because of this problem.

I'm 19 years old and I feel like a shell of a person. I've isolated myself and I'm physically scared to be around others because I'm nervous they'll smell my odor. Its a terrible way to live.

Here's some things I noticed:

-When I sit down the gas is worse
-When in a stressed environment the flatulence gets worse
-I can't smell the odor
-Even when there's no flatulence apparently there's still an odor

Things I'm currently trying:

-Activated charcoal pills (I noticed they help a little with the amount of gas but not with the odor.)
-chlorophyll pills (I haven't noticed any changes when using this, I've only been using it for a short time so I'll continue to use it and see what happens.)
-Detox Baths
-Colon cleansers
-Eating healthier -more vegetables, fruit, yogurt

Things I'm going to try
-Oil of oregano (I heard great reviews on it - I just ordered it)
-Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (I heard some amazing things about this, I'm excited to try it.)

Finding this site and seeing that I'm not alone has been the most relief I've felt in while. Anyone feel free to message me. I just really need someone to talk to that can relate to me.

Try drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day, but heat the water, the same temperature that you would heat a cup of tea, and put flesh lemon juice from a lemon in the water and drink daily, I have personally found that this helps to internally cleanse the body, and when I have consistently done this, I have been able to smell the flatulence.  I think this is good, because it lets you know that you are daily cleansing  the body from the inside out, and it allows you to be able to smell the odor, this helps, because if you are out in public and can smell the flatulence, you can move away from others, avoid embarrassment etc. After you have tried the remedies that you have stated, also try digestive enzymes with each meal, and also if you are lactose intolerant, which means you have problem drinking milk and eating dairy products, also purchase Lactaid enzymes, and this will help your body to effectively digest daily foods and eliminate the gas. The enzymes help to break down the foods in the body. When you constantly have gas every time you eat food, it maybe because the foods aren't being fully digested in the body. This is the trick to taking enzymes you have to consistently take them for period of time, at least for a month to see some real results, sometime when trying differently remedies, we stop taking the remedies, before they have time to work, a lot of the remedies you have to be consistent and it a may take some time for you body to adjust to them. Also try probiotics, which adds good bacteria to the stomach, and helps to get rid of gas. You mentioned that the flatulence increases when you are stressed, You are going to have to find away to eliminate the stress, what ever way you can. Maybe take some online college courses etc. The last note, try earthclinic.com, it is an Excellent website created by a professional Doctor, and people from all over the world go to this site to get help for different physical problems. Once you are on the website, type in your problem, and then it will lead you  to different discussions and natural remedies for that problem.  Don't give Up!!

One other thing I forgot to state, which seem to go without saying, but a lot of times when we constantly have gas, it's because we have to eliminate waste from the body, meaning we need to do no. 2, Sometimes peoples body changes and instead of the body just eliminating the waste.  The body has a new or different way to let you know it's trying to eliminate  the waste.  This may happen because we aren't drinking enough water, the body had changed etc. And I find when I have taken enmyes, probiotics etc, and I still have that gas problem, it's time to go to the bathroom, it doesn't have to be a lot of elimination. sometimes just a tiny amount, can cause the gas to stop.

I'm an older woman, 61. I've suffered from gi problems all my life. 3 years ago 1/2 of my colon had to be removed. I have thyroid desease, Hoshimoto's. Most Drs. don't put it together, but people with thyriod disorder have gi problems and some times heart attachs at a young age, I did. So, after the surgury I developed fibromyalgai. It all runs in the family. I got to sick to work, it's totally miserable.
So the good part. Yes it does take the total elimination diet "google leeky gut syndrome. I'm gluten intolerant. No gluten, no fibrmyalgia. Also, thru my life I was always better no a low carb diet and excersize. I mean ALOT better. No cheese, no eggs, no gluten. No processed sugar. Yes, it's very hard and for me it took 8-9 months to rid myself of the pain and suffering that had become debilitaing. Don't let it go so far. No Drs. ever suggested diet, some how it was all my fault. But this was not true. A strict diet helped me. And it doesn't show up in your tsh when your young. Drs have to do ALL the thyroid tests. t3, free t3, t4. I'm intolerant to synthroid. I went to a specialist who had a relationship with a compounding pharmacy. This is a lot of info, but I lived threw it and wish I could do some thing so young people don't have to suffer. BTW smelly gas=so much sugar and gluten. Gluten is in beer, not other alcahols. But you have to lower sugar and alcahol turns to sugar. I had to give up my beloved wine. I still drink a little, rum doesn't seem to hurt if just some. Strange! Don't believe DRS, they think, so what? It's just you r thyroid doesn't work take more synthryiod. My body couldn't handle that..it was like speed because it was not converting correctly in my body. I hope in the future all these issues will be tied together and taken seriously by the medical community. Now, we have to do it our selves. The diet works! But it's hard, however, so is constant gas and joint , body pain. remember google "leeky gut".

Sorry for the last response I need to check this site more. Unfortunately I didn't notice much of a difference when taking the oil of oregano or bragg apple cider vinegar . Its weird because I had been showing signs of parasites like this weird freaky thing came out of me while I was taking those products. So I decided to do a parasite cleanse and honestly the parasite cleanse is the only thing that's helped reduce the gas I had.

Mix one tsp honey in a little warm water & drink this twice a day - once before bedtime & once in the morning with breakfast. This will help regulate your bowels & bring relief to constipation. Also try having green tea in the mornings with some honey & light Activia yogurt. This has helped me tremendously & hope will help others too suffering from smelly gas, constipation & people not being able to enjoy foods they love!

woodchick gets it. Pay attention to what she's saying. It's spot on. If you reduce your carb intake, you will reduce your gas output, (not to mention the possible improvement of a variety of other problems such as acid reflux). This is something experienced by me many years ago, and also by just about anyone I know who has dabbled with a low or reduced carbohydrate diet. Those that would cite fat as the source of a problem like this are misinformed.
One analogy used by a prominent pair of authors on the subject of low carb noted that when bootleggers want to induce fermentation, they add sugar to the still. It works that way in your gut as well - add carbs (sugar), induce fermentation.

Do you eat any grains for example, barley, millet etc, If not how do you get by without eating any starches?  Do you have a problem with taking calcium or iron supplements, and if you do, what is your alternative?

Hi Jessicadit,

I don't have Ig or leaky gut, I tried oil of oregano, but that didn't totally help me, and when taking Oil of Oregano you only have to take about 2 drops under you tongue at one time, If you don't feel safe using it on a regular basis, I will say to you always follow your heart.  I still have gas, I think that mine comes from being lactose intolerant, meaning my body can't process the sugar in whole milk.  Therefore milk products causes me to have gas.  I take calcium supplements, but that also causes gas.

But, dealing with gas problem, these are the following remedies that helps me to deal with it.  First, and I pray and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ, I think you have to go to the creator of you body, and seek answers, because everybody's body is different, and what works for one person may never work for another person.  So, that's where I find my comfort and support, praying an seeking help from my heavenly Father.

These are  things that I have taken that helps me.  After eating a meal, and I have gas, I take "Pure Organic
Coconut oil", and this helps with the gas.  Also, stress, anxiety, anger can also cause all types of digestive issues, such as gas.  I also use digestive enzyme after eating, and you also have to eat a proper diet. This information may or mayn't help you but as I mentioned before, if you want a sure thing, you must develop a personal relationship with God through prayer and the Word of God, and seek Him for yourself, and He can truly direct you concerning your issue, because the truth is He is the creator of your body, so why not go to the manufacturer of your body and cut out the middle man!

God Bless

Foul smelling gas or bad breath is caused by many factors such as bad diet and lifestyle. The primary cause of it is BACTERIA due to low stomach acid. When your stomach has little acid it becomes the breeding ground of any kinds of bacteria and other organisms that produce foul smell. Then you will develop CANDIDA, H.PYLORI, SIBO which can damage your intestinal tract. If you have silver fillings in teeth and allergic to heavy metal like mercury then you'll likely have candida and other health problems. If you have chronic gastritis, ulcer, heartburn, GERD, acid reflux etc. then you have H.Pylori bacteria swimming in your gut. CANDIDA AND H.PYLORI CAUSES LEAKY GUT AND OTHER GUT PROBLEMS. SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth is also associated with candida and H.pylori. Source: http://www.holistichelp.net/blog/candida-sibo-or-h-pylori/

You have no idea how nasty people can be.

Although I cannot smell it myself (a common theme, it seems), I have had  smelly gas everyday for over 35 years. From the start, doctors had no answer and were dismissive and I was made to feel neurotic and paranoid (especially as i can't smell it). I gave up going to GPs about it after 5 years and researched and self medicated to no avail. It does not help when the expert advice is that it is normal for women to fart up to 14 times a day. I am well within that range.
I gave up trying to be around people 10 years ago after the woman who kept calling me a "farty s..." whenever she saw me in the supermarket and around town, before complaining about me to store staff who sprayed air freshner in my direction, turned out to be the wife of my GP (who could not have known I sought help years before from other doctors).
I totally understand her complaining, but the name calling was upsetting and made the problem worse, particularly around her. Also, it put me off discussing the problem with her husband, even though he might have taken it seriously, especially as he was with his wife on at least two occasions when I farted. I just thought he would have no empathy.
Luckily, around this time it became possible for me to shop online, including grocery shopping. It was either that or suicide.

I can relate to you. I am 18 years old and now a college student. My problem had started since highschool, and I havent found a solution. I had been to different doctors several times but nothing changed. I was diagnosed before with acute gastroenteritis, but after taking medications the problem seemed to have gone worse. I had tried self-medication using herbal products but it didnt seem to help.

I tried changing my diet, avoiding sweets, carbonated drinks, alcohol and fatty food. I also tried using activated charcoal, apple cider vinegar, black pepper tea and guava leaf tea. But nothing changed.

Like you the symptoms are the same, I dont exactly feel the gas passing but there is an odor. I notice it when Im sitting as the chair gets really hot. Its really embarrassing. I also avoid going to air conditioned or closed spaces. The last time I went to the library, other students were complaining about the smell and the librarian had to spray air freshener in my direction. I never went back again. What's more frustrating is the gas constantly passes like every 5 minutes, I couldnt even sit still for an hour. It has greatly affected my social life and school life. Now I always have to avoid sitting close to anyone, even at the church, I always have to choose the seat in the last row. I had stopped school for a year to focus on medications, still nothing changed.

Now I'm getting depressed and contemplating on suicide. Because I already did everything I could. How would I even finish school and get a job, or get married. Who would want a smelly officemate who farts every five minutes.

I provided my email if anyone wants to share with me their experience, how do you deal with it, also possible solutions.

I backreaded all of the comments (all 200+ of them) and notice that most have found relief by going on a low-carb or gluten free diet along with probiotics. Now my only problem is trying out low carb (or even no carb) diet, I am Asian (particularly Filipino) and rice has always been a staple food. We eat rice 3x a day, and occassionally sweet potatoes and other root crops. I dont know how can I avoid that. And also, the availability of probiotics. We dont have much health food stores here unlike in the US. And if there is, its usually very far from where I live (I live in the province). I wanted to try drinking Yakult after every meal, but I dont know if its really considered as probiotics.

I am also gonna try out apple cider vinegar again, my doctor before had told me that I was acidic and had to avoid citrus fruits, vinegars and other sour food. But I read somewhere in the comments that the symptoms for low acid and acidic stomach are pretty much the same. I'll see how it goes.

Hey there, suicide is not the answer!!! Please get tested for Helicobacter Pylori bacteria that's found in the deepest folds of our gut. I've suffered like you for many, many years until this doctor performed an endoscopy and I tested positive for the bacteria. It is a very stubborn bacteria that needs three part medication/antibiotics for 14 days. I did very well after the treatment for about 6-7 months until I went to Africa. The stupid bacteria retuned maybe from water or food, I don't know? But took the same medication and I'm feeling pretty well for now...hope this helps and hopefully you will find cure/answer for your problem pretty soon. Again, suicide is not the answer!!! Keep living my friend!

Hi, I can not tell anyone why we get such bad gas or why it smells really bad.  However, I do have a solution to rid if the smell IMMEDIATELY.  just light a match and blow it out!!!  The odour will go immediately!!

My step daughter has gas all the time, she can't burp, but passes gas all the time, and that's not an overstatement.  She will pass gas at least 10 times every half hour, most sound like she shat herself, and most all smell like a Mexican outhouse.  great to keep boys away, but not good to be around, between her butt and feet, I get constant nauseous
