Bad body odor, causing depression. Using antibacterial soap. Do i have TMAU?

Hi, I don t know why I always have bad fecal body odor, I shower two/three times a day, and even with antibacterial soap. I use antiperspirant at night and deodorant after I shower, but I still smell. I can t seem to smell it myself but everyone else can. It s slowly taking over my life and making me more depressed. Do i have TMAU?
