Brief Answer:
Causes for body odor

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I can understand your concern.

There is a long list of reasons for body odor, and maybe, knowing your medical history would help identify the cause.

Body odor may be a result of diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, high functioning thyroid, which causes increased sweating, as well as stress, consumption of spicy foods and obesity. However, stress is one of the main reasons for body odor.

If your doctor has already performed a physical examination and done at least a basic checkup for all those above-mentioned conditions then any major concern has already been ruled out.

I would recommend starting with a change in diet and lifestyle, to eliminate stress and the type of food you consume, as possible causes. Exercise, eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids and shower after each physical activity.

I hope I have answered your query.
Please let me know if you have further queries.

Take care
