Bad Body Odor
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Naturally, sweat is odorless. Even though it contains most of your excretory solutes, it should be odorless.

There are several reasons of acquiring a body odor; unfortunately there are very few ways to treat this since body odor may be a disease itself or a complication/symptom of a major disease. Your doctors may suggest treatments or therapies to you while they also determine through the process the reason why you acquired your bad body odor. So simply put, why you are being treated, the doctors are also experimenting and determining your disease.

Usually, when you have a body odor, you will first go to a dermatologist since the concern is skin. The odor usually comes out from the armpits. Worse conditions include bad body odor sweat in other areas such as your back, head, groin, feet and etc. Your dermatologist will first prescribe you with external medications like antibacterial and antiperspiration. Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis will usually worsen body odor that is why this is being treated. They said that you may have overpopulated bacteria in your skin. If these don’t work, the dermatologist will prescribe you with antibiotics, that is they are assuming that the bacterial infection comes from your gut or the bacteria in your skin is of more resistant strain that it can counter antibiotics applied externally. If this doesn’t work usually, the doctor will exhaust more treatments such as surgery.

If dermatologists don’t see skin as the major problem but rather as a symptom, the next thing you should do is to consult an endocrinologist. Some body odor problems may be related to your hormones. Some of the diseases that may be related to hormones are hyperthyroidism and some metabolic disorders.

If still it doesn’t work contact a gastroenterologist. There is a possibility that the problem is in the liver. The liver is the organ that functions to filter our system for wastes. If the liver is having problems, the filtering system is inefficient and the toxins of the body may be mixed with blood and excreted through our sweat. Other organs that may have problems include your intestines and kidneys.

Having a body odor is really a stressful condition especially if other people do not understand the situation you are in. Most people first impression is that you have poor hygiene that is why at the back of their heads they are insulting you that you acquire such odor because you are filthy. Do not take in seriously other people comments. At the end, if you give in with stressful conditions you may end up having heart problems and so you are the loser. Try to remain calm and focus your mind in your goals in life. Step by step try to live in a healthy lifestyle and try to be sensitized with other comments. In the end, it is you who will rule your life and not just by other nonsense comments. In addition, do not blame those who complain with your odor. Remember, people respond first physiologically. Bad odors usually are sensed by the body as threat to the system that is why the brain is telling the person to cover or to move away from the source to prevent any odor molecules from entering the system.
