Hello,

thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

I wish to know whether you are perceiving the odor in form of a flatulence or feces or you just smell bad odor directly from your anus?
The most likely cause from bad odor through the anus is poor food digestion or indigestion of food that is poorly prepared.
Please do answer above question for proper follow-up.

Regards

You are welcome. Also it will be wise for you to do a stool exams. Very bad feces odor could be as a result of an infection. As such, a stool exams can tell what specific infection is responsible then you might be provided with an appropriate antibiotics by your doctor.
