Recently my partner has had a strange smelling sweat some days. Its sort of a sickly sweet smell and seems to happen only after nights where he's drunk a lot of wine. His wine drinking hasn't changed but this smell thing has started. Any idea's about what it could be would be appreciated.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Sickening sweet smell in sweat can be due to ketoacidosis due to uncontrolled diabetes. It can also be due to bacterial infection. Hence both these conditions will have to be ruled out. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Take care!
