Why do I smell!?
« on: April 06, 2024, 06:02:16 PM »

Been on 75 patch and gel since Feb 1st.
Had Mirena fitted 2 weeks ago - Al for suspected Peri (I’m 39).

I smell! Groin, arms, under arms, neck, back! I have night sweats, have a shower and it’s still not going! Use the stronger deodorant but it’s horrendous.

Tiniest bit of sweat and I’m gross!

I had that. They don't know. It came and went. Found that crystal, potassium alum,  helped a bit.. It stains, on dark, I warn!

I've found using a body scrub in my armpits as well  as my body gets rid of the smell! I do it 2-3 times a week and use a gentle body scrub by the sanctuary.
I've swapped to Mitcham deodorant too and that's a big help too.
It's a nightmare but hope that's helpful.

Can any1 else notice that you are aware of body odour?  I began an Oh Errrr - because I could smell me but DH even close up didn't notice  ::)

Anti-perspirant helps prevent sweating
Deodorant -  deodorises/covers up smells caused by bacteria

Certain medications can cause odour too

Hi there,

So sorry to hear about this.

I do have one thing that might help with the arm pits bit.

My hairdresser recommended it years ago as I suffer with a lot of perspiration under my arms. It's called Driclor. You can get it in Boots. It's amazing stuff and does what it says on the tin.

Hope this helps. ☺️
