Body odor coming through pores. How to control?

My father is diabetic and recieves dialysis 3 times a week for the passed 7 years. But these passed day he has felt like he had bad smell, I smell him my brothers smell him and my mother also smell him but he doesn t have bad odor. Is him that feels that he s body smells bad. What could that be? Could it be that his internal organ are about to die. Because he was at the hospital 2 weeks ago and the cardialogist said that give him 3 years of life left because of his health condition. Plus he recieves dialysis and people say that patients that recieve dialysis have a 10 year life time and he has been recieving dialysis for passed 7 years

Hi, Doc, I am not a diabetic, nor do I have any bad diseases, I currently am taking amlodipine, and I am on Lyrica for nerve pain, I recently had a laminectomy 2010, my question is why do I keep having these foul odors from my mouth and my body, right after a bath, I brush my teeth and the smell aftewards is if I had not and a foul odor is in the sink afterward, I have to use bleach to get rid of the smell, after a shower or bath the stink in the tub lingers, and now it has permeated the whole house, anxiety, stress really makes it worse, what can I do to alleviate this, on Sept 15, I had a colonoscopy and have polyps, on a return visit 10/20 I will get the others removed, I also have anal leakage, I wash and scrub, wash and scrub and I get the same smell, what can I do

Hello.welcome.If other people surrounding him don't feel any bad smell then either some problem with his oral hygiene or may be anosmia.Consult a neurophysician for the diagnosis.Good luck.

Hi robert,
Dialysis patient survival is depends on the underlying cause or disease and frequency of dialysis and amount of end organ damage, some patient may survie for 6 months and some 20 years, secondly he may have anosmia due to dysfunction of olfactory organ so he may be feeling bad odour. continue with dialysis.
Take care
