I have a strange body odor, what could be the problem ?

I have this bad odor coming from my body. I m not really sure where it s coming from but it just smells bad. It doesn t smell like body odor, it s more like the smell of a fart. I shower daily and use anti-bacterial soap, I ve been taking multi- vitamins and magnesium supplements (I read online they fight body odor), but nothing works! Any idea as to what my problem is? And if anyone knows how to alleviate this it d be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the query

Bad odor is most of times because of bacteria in the low oxygen areas of the body like arm pits, groin, etc. Continue using anti bacterial soap, add a lilttle dettol to the bathing tub every day before taking bath. Also use deo sprays. always keep a deo at hand. Drink lots of water as well. Multi vitamins is of no help
