What could be this bad smell coming from my butt?

For the past few months, I ve been noticing this bad odor coming from what seems to be my butt. It smells like poop/fart but I shower daily and wipe thoroughly. I haven t had this my whole life, it just seemed to pop up randomly within the last few months. Any suggestions as to what I can do will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Normally the sweat is odorless but due to the action of Bacteria it produces an unpleasant smell. It can be due to personal hygiene, fungal infections, over weight, eating spicy foods or medical conditions like diabetes.

Keep the area dry by using a talcum powder. Have a healthy and nutritious diet and maintain good personal hygiene. Add few drops of savlon to the water you use for bathing and use antiperspirant deo. If the symptoms persist then fungal infection has to be ruled out.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
