Odor behind ears and on the side of nose

Hello,
About a year ago, I started noticing this not so pleasant odor behind my ears when I rub the back of them. One usually smells worse than the other. Recently, in the last three months that same odor is now on the side of my nose. It is where that little clef on the side is. I wash, but the odor comes back.
Can this be a warning of some kind of medical issue, like an infection somewhere in the body?

It sounds like a skin yeast infection to me.  They can happen anywhere skin folds touch each other.  And usually need medication to clear them up.  It is not a lack of hygeine.  Go to a dr.
