I have oily rancid odor. It is really bad on my scalp.

My scalp is oily.  My pillow case has yellow discoloration on it from the oil.  I need to shower more than twice a day to try to control the oil and odor.  I am a 62 year old male.  The older I get the worse this odor is getting.  My wife doesn't even want to sleep in the same bed with me.

That's a bummer.  What kind of shampoo do you use? You should see your doctor to make sure that you don't have a fungal issue.  Definitely can cause issues like you are having and requires treatment.  Have you tried any home remedies?  Or talked to your doctor about it?
