Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
the menstrual blood as such does have a typical odour which in your case becomes more prominent near the end of the cycle. You can just take some simple measures like washing the area frequently with soap and water and changing your pad more frequently before it is fully soaked.

I am taking lisinopril for a mild high pressure and protonix for severe gastrisitis. I have developed itchy spots on my body almost hives like. In addition I am emitting a rather foul body odor. Is either condition associated with the medicine that I am taking? Pehaps an alergic reaction?

For many months I ve been noticing that my pajamas when I wake up in the morning and clothes at the end of the day smells strange like car exhaust. Even if I haven t left the house been around cars, been outside etc. Especially every morning when I wake up its strong, its like its oozing out of my pores. But when I smell my skin I don t smell it. I ve had other people smell my shirts after wearing them and they smell it too. My clothes don t smell like this when I put them on. I do not and have not had sinus problems of any kind nor and excessive bad breath. What could this be?? Thanks
