Brief Answer:
Can be due to skin infections or dehydration.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
A strong metallic odour from the body can be due to excessive sweating or skin infections or a dehydration. She needs to increase her fluid intake and keep the skin clean as much as possible. Get a good deodorant and use thrice a day.
Use medicated soap in place of routine toilet soap. I would advise Dettol/Savlon.
Cut down on fried fatty snacks/foods and the poultry products.
If still the trouble stays then give him a course of Clindamycin/Doxycycline antibiotics for 7days.
The mood changes and anxiety that she has can be related to the birth control patch but this can be confirmed only after removing it.
I hope this answers your query.
