How to get rid of the fishy odour from the body ?

How do I get rid of a fishy odour I have coming from my body. I can't smell it on my skin but its like fishy air that comes from me. I can't isolate which part of my body but it is overpowering. I think its because I have been taking a weightloss drink containing high doses of L-Carnitine and I have been having this at least twice a day.

Thank for asking to HCM
If you have doubt for the medicine you are taking then stop it, more over all the medicine which available for weight reducing gives partial effect or placebo effect, and have more bad side effects than good one, for the bad odour first thing you shave your under arm hair, use better quality deodorant cologne would be much better, have lots of fresh vegetable, fresh fruit, in diet, have regular exercise, sleep well eat well. take bath at least twice a day. it will go away soon, Have good day.

My room mate has had body lice for 2 1/2 months now. The dr. s are calling this a major infestation. I am so paranoid that I or my children will catch this. We have all gone to the Doctors office and received the permetrin cream about a month ago. She can t seem to get rid of the bugs and it is driving her into an obsessive/compulsive spin. Is there a medical condition that wold make her body not be able to respond to Permetrin? At this point should I treat my 10 yr old twins again? I don t know what to do, I am constantly looking for signs of lice on myself. She has either thrown away all of her clothing or bagged it up and put it in the garage.
