I constantly smell "mustiness" matter where I am but

I constantly smell "mustiness" matter where I am but especially in my home. I have no known allergies. I cough occasionally and it is productive...somewhat thick and opaque. I sneeze occasionally. Sometimes wake with a very slight headache. Our home is air conditioned but we clean and change our filters often. I clean our drains and the trap in my dishwasher. We empty the trash frequently from our kitchen...more than 1x daily. Any thoughts?

Hi Samuel, I gave birth to my 2nd child 9 months ago, during pregnancy & for approx. 2 years prior to that, I had what doctors continued to diagnose as an extremely bad candida infection. However, I always felt that something else existed. I really had 2 types of discharges. The 1st was a very very thick cottage cheese type discharge which was grey in colour. The 2nd was clear & the smell was extremely musty & extremely strong. This clear discharge was always present & I always had wet/damp undies to the point where I had to wear panty liners & change Em every few hours. These discharges existed together however at the time I guess I thought they were the same thing. Anyway, since I gave birth it just completely disappeared.......until now. The thick discharge is not present just the clear musty smelling one which makes me feel wet in that area all the time. I lived with this very uncomfortable problem for almost 3 years & I seriously do not want to go back to that. No amount of creams, antibiotics etc helped the problem before & I am concerned that the GP s are going to again dismiss my problem as thrush. I did have 2 swab tests done but am unsure as to the extent of what they tested for, apart from candida. What should I do?

This is starting to concern me.. for 3 months now I contantly have a musty odor mixed with what smells like exhaust fumes in my nose no matter where I am.. I ve had a porcelain bridge ( original teeth grinded down ) for the bridge to fit and also noticed a small lump on my upper gum above the bu-cuspid.. This is really scaring me as I am also getting the sensation of furballs in my throat .. Can you please help me to pinpoint what this odor could be coming from,, Do I have mold growing in my body??

My husband has a moldy musty smelling breath which lingers even after brushing his teeth. He also complains of lethargy, takes pariet for reflux, can sometimes get constipated and feels bloated in his stomach. He describes it like he feels his body is not processing the food he eats efficiently??
