Bad body odor can be due to a lot of factors: diet, hormones, certain illnesses and underlying conditions such as liver or kidney disease where the body is incapable to processing and removing certain toxins due to the diseased organ. These conditions can be ruled out by blood tests which measure kidney and liver function. Have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management.

SOMETIMES I HAVE AN ODOR WHEN I HAVE A POSSIBLE UTI AND MY KIDNEYS FEEL AS THOUGH THEY ARE BEING AFFECTED AS WELL...THEY HURT SOME. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
How are you? Can you elaborate on the location of the pain? To rule out infection, I recommend that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Urinalysis may be done to confirm if an infection is present. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid eating spicy food to lessen any body odor.

I just joined MedHelp and was reading with interest the post on the strong body odor (even after a bath) and potential connection to a kidney or liver problem. Dr. Santos, could you refer us to any articles or reviews that detail these odors and what the underlying problem could be? For example, is the kind of odor indicative of a certain intermediate metabolite (resulting from normal metabolism) that is not getting detoxified and solubilized in the kidney?
try miconazole nitrate vaginal cream for skin yeast infection in both men and women. Also for body odor try chlorophyll capsules.
