I doubt it is caused by HCV but if your on tx, it could be a different story. Like fretboard said, need more information.

I'm not aware of Hep C causing odours.  I'd look at other causes.

Have you considered the beans and rice?

It isn't clear from your post where the odor is emanating from; different locations point to different possible issues.

This can happen with cirrhotics, but if you are not cirrhotic it should not be likely.  That pertains to the breath, and I got the vibe that you mean the smell is coming from your skin?

If you use the board search engine and type in  "odor" , you will be directed to several threads that are related to digestive issues.

This sounds like a issue that may best be answered by a doctor, but I always think it's good to check out possibilities first.
