Bathe one day with soap all over, bathe the next day with soap in the important areas.

That should help. Don't bathe or shower with really hot water.

Use magnesium oil for deodorant. You can dilute it 50/50 with distilled water and spray it on. Some people use milk of magnesia for deodorant.

You could also try high quality essential oils that are pleasant smelling.

I don't think you stink because it has anything to do with the kind of soap you are using. Likely you are toxic and need to do some serious detoxing.

Our skin is a major detoxification organ and when things get that bad the odor comes out of our pores.

Also avoid all synthetic clothes. The best all cotton tops I've found are at LLBean and some at Lands' End. Be sure they are 100% cotton, not even a little lycra as that can cause sweating and even odor for those with such issues.

Bras can be tricky finding but even if that item is not all cotton, putting a fresh tissue rolled up underneath where an underwire might go help absorb moisture and can be changed out several times a day if needed. Keeps one cooler.

Cotton panties are very important, though, to staying cool. Cotton panels are not enough. The full panty should be as near 100% cotton as possible. Very hard to find these days but possible. Spanx and that sort of thing, not at all. Avoid petroleum as much as possible in clothing.

Also be sure garments are not wrinkle-resistant treated with chemicals (many are).

I find skirts far easier, airier and, therefore just perfect for this matter, too. They can have more synthetic fiber as they are not tight fitting (normally). And the good thing now is that any skirt length is fashionable. Just find your style.

Denim skirts are still winners for me.

What supplements are you taking?

There are some out there, esp. herbals, that can make you smell.

I had to quit taking alpha lipoic acid, because it smelled so bad.

Garlic is obviously another one.

You might take a look at your diet as well,

Anti-perspirants cause you to retain toxins... so avoid if you can. I know living in Texas makes that nearly impossible.

How about an epsom salt bath to detox and soothe the skin?

Hubby noticed when he feels toxic, he smells very soon after his shower. Even using deodorant.

When he's not feeling toxic he can go without using deodorant and isn't smelly.


Lemon water in the morning helps the liver detox.

I have been using frequency treatments for various infections for a decade or so.

The only time I have gotten stinky is when I started killing mycoplasma. I don't have an explanation for it, but after treating, I will smell like I haven't bathed in a week. It would last a couple of days.

Once I reduced the mycoplasma from systematic to a small amount, the smell went away. I can treat it now with no obnoxious smell.

That is why I found your experience interesting.

For deodorant, you could try 50% rubbing alcohol - leaves no smell and seems to work!

If you have access to a fir sauna, they are great for detox.

Might help.

Me too, and it is related to screwed up systems from lyme, not sure exactly which one. Really horrible and other people notice it. So embarrassing. Bought some anti-perspirant with aluminum, which I hate using, but sometimes you just gotta.
