Thanks for the query,

Well you, have the smell problem, for this there are many possibilities, the first possibility, may be of some renal pathology. other causes includes hepatic encephalopathy( a lever pathology)., some times it is genetic, the gene responsible is major histoincompatibility gene., bacterial infection of sweat glands of skin--the bacteria responsible is stylococcus epidermidis.

So, these are the common conditions of bad odour.

What you will have to do now---

1- takebath atleast 3 times a day with antibiotic soap.
2- use antibacterial solution, like ozaena , for local application.
3- Get your self investigated like renal and lever profile.
4-Take a course of oral anti fungal., and a antibiotic.

Dont worry, you will be soon out of this problem.
