What causes night sweats and bad body odour during the day?

Hi,
I am a 32 year old woman, I am 5'2 and 110 lb. I have been having very bad night sweats, soaking the sheets and pools of sweat in between my legs and on my chests. It has a sweet sour smell? I also have increasing bad body order during the day. Until the last month I have never even had to wear deodorant, and never was a sweater.

Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. Usual causes of sweat with bad odour and night sweats recently can be due to metabolic problems like diabetes or hyperthyroidism or due to infections somewhere in the body. Urine routine tests and thyroid profile should be done to rule out diabetes and hyperthyroidism. If you have problems like sinusitis or chronic tonsillitis it can be the reason also. Using deodorants and anti perspirants will be helpful till you sort out the cause and solve it.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
