Weird smell on my pants and underwear

I've seen a lot of posts about fecal odors and other weird smells coming from the rears of people, but I can't seem to figure out what is up with me. So almost everyday I start off the day just fine with no smell; but as the day wears on, especially if I sit for long periods of time and I sweat, a weird odor starts to develop. It doesn't smell like fecal matter, but it is definitely weird. I can smell it on my underwear, and even on my pants. Sometimes it gets to the point where I am afraid to walk in front of sitting people because they will notice it. I wipe fairly cleanly after using the restroom, but I don't often scrub down there during showers. There are some times when feces particles have stuck to my anal hairs for a short time, but the smell still develops even if I haven't taken a dump all day. I also have a decent amount of hair around my anus. Not a lot, but a good clump. Is there anything I can do to fix this smell? Thanks.
