What Causes Fish-like Smell In The Genitals After Eating Fish?

This is very embarrassing so please don t laugh. For the past 3 or 4 years whenever I eat any kind of fish, the next day I smell like fish (told you it was embarrassing) in my genital area. I ve always eaten fish & it never happened before. What is causing this.

Hello,

It is a strange symptom and probably be your wrong perception.

Clean the genitals with soap and water and you can apply good quality moisturizer also.

If symptoms persist better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
