How can foul body odor be treated?

I have a problem with my armpits. I am constantly having an odor from my armpits. I have seen a doctor and they simply told me to drink more water. I have tried every deodorant there is men and women. I do not sweat, nor am I producing sweat. Just the odor. I wash several times in a day to keep the odor down. Please help me nobody has been able to help me.

For almost 40 years, i have struggled with body odor. People say I smell like I had a bowel movement and always say I need a bath. I have had many test and doctors can not find a cause. I was told I had a diseased gall bladder by some doctors, others can t find any issue with my gall bladder. I have had my colon scanned and test ran and still no one come up with an issue. Any help would be appreciated! Suggestions?

My 17yr old daughter has a strong body odor. SHE is still a virgin, showers daily, healthy, and she is also a athlete. We have tried everything from baking soda to summers eve , vagisil and other FEMININE products. This is embarrassing to her and she leaves for college in a few weeks. What do YOU suggest we do about this ?

My sister and niece both have body odor, poor hygiene is certainly part of the cause but i m suspicious as to whether there could be additional reasons . My sister has type 2 diabetes and my niece has adrenal genital syndrome the smell is overpowering and difficult to describe.
