Why do I smell like fart all the time ?

For about the past 6-8 months now I ve had this smell folowing me around. I can notice it when I m sitting or laying down, but its fairly faint, and I know for sure it exists because of comments at school and people s body language when they re around me. It smells exactly like I just farted, even when I m certain I didn t. I m also quite sure this isn t a case of bad hygeine either, for I shower once, sometimes twice a day using shampoo , bar soap, and body wash. I wear deodorant and a light men s fragrance and always wipe my butt thoroughly when finished with my business. I take a multi-vitamin and a probiotic ( Acidophilus ) every morning with breakfast. The doctor I went to see had no explanation for my problem, and just sort of gave me an odd look when I explained my issue. If anyone has an idea or suggestion about what this could be it would be greatly appreciated, its basically ruining my life, thank you.

How about your breath? I work with someone that has had this issue and it was determined it was his breath, get someone to smell it OR take a stronger tissue ( bounty or whatever ) wrap it on your finger and rub the back of your tongue a bit.
