    I was very interested in the advice given this weeks update for under arm sweating. Can the 'cure' be on Nhs ? I saw the update and this looks perfect solution for my daughter who sweats a lot and has some body odour as well. It runs her social life and people don't understand she us very clean but the body odour econes excessive and I feel for her . If not how much would it cost and how do I choose the practitioner to help

    Im a 15 year old girl. I recently went to the doctors because my vaginal discharge has a fishy odour and was yellowish and creamish and was quite excessive. It's gotten to the point where i have to wear a pad everyday and leggins underneath my trousers in order to hide the smell. My doctor did a swab test but found nothing abnormal. She prescribed me with antibiotics and now it has turned thick, creamy and has a salty odour. Is there a different reason as to why this is happening to me or is there anyway i could get normal clear non odour discharge? Any help on this would be great!

    I have watched your video about body odour, and i dont agree with what the presenter has said. I have suffered with body odour all my life, and even when i dont sweat, i shower constantly and have used every single product on the market. Its a terrible condition that has basically ruined and ruled my life. Im becoming a recluse because of this condition, as i hate being around people anymore. People believe that your dirty and dont wash, and maybe im a very small statistic,as this is so far from the truth, but every day is a struggle for me. I dont know if you know of any web sites where you can talk to other sufferers, i would be very grateful if you could let me know.

    I have the same problem. no matter how much showering, i still give off the smell of BO. I also became a recluse and i'm constantly paranoid. my social life became less and less and people started to ask if i was alright. but i was too embarrassed to say. i went to my local gp about it and they were rubbish! game me 'driclor' which stops you from sweating. but i'm not an eccessive sweater! i believe after a lot of research on the net that it could be due to the digestive system, and toxins leaking from the gut into our blood stream which come out through our sweat. it can be related to servere constipation, leaky gut syndrome, candidiasis etc. Hope this helps.

    I had most of the skin tags removed by the G.P. several years ago by the freezing process. There were a few left but small. After several years they began growing again and more have spread out and grown. They were increasing and getting bigger and bigger. I recently bought Tea Tree Oil in Shower Gel from the Body Shop. Since I have been showering with this nearly all of the small ones have disappeared and the big ones are reducing in size. I did not know this would happen. I will continue to use the Tea Tree Oil in the Shower Gel to see if it will get rid of all of them. This has not happened yet, but I have only been using this for a short amount of time. So far very good results. I bought this to remove strong body odour in the private areas of the body and I was sweating a lot. I have found it virtually almost removes the strong body odour and sweating. The reduction in skin tags was an extra benefit I did not expect. I hope this helps

    I have very heavy body odour, it's very uncomfortable, I have to spray very 5-10 min, what can I do to stop that? What should I cut down in my diet, or what should I drink? Any recommendation on body deodorant?

    I am a 28 year old female who also suffer from hyperhidrosis and bad body odour. This is just horrible and affecting my everyday life.I went to many doctors and still couldn't find the right treatment. I have had botox injected under my arms, it helped a bit but I still sweat excessively from other body parts. I have also tried various clinical antiperspirants such as diclor. Although it dries my underarms ,it doesn't cure my problem. My main problem is bad body odour and /I don't know what is the cause of it. I have had blood test done, nothing suggests that it is due to health problems, my hormone level is normal and everything else too. I just do not know what to do, I avoid social situations, I am getting depressed because of this, I am scared to go to the shops , take a bus or being around people. People moving away from me, hold their noses or make comments. This also affect my relationship with my husband and family as I get angry when they say I don't have a problem and it is in my head.Is anyone else having such a problem ? Just wanted to add I am very fit and eat healthy .

    Hi. I am suffering the same problem as every body who have commented here. I have always had bad breath and blood have always come out of my mouth each time i brush. My dentist also said my teeth is good. I, however, have also noticed that i now have bad body odour which started three years ago and bitter taste in my throat. None of my doctors have been able to help so far. Of all the comments here, the guy who said he has been helped with the HP medication pack seems to make sence. Can any body advice on how i can go about getting this. Thanks.

    I have the same problem, which is not caused by dental problems. I went to a specialist clinic some years ago and was told that it was probably due to a food intolerance, and that I should try an elimination diet. It's difficult to stick at but I did narrow it down I think, to dairy products or wheat. They also told me that the only effective moutwash which eliminates bad breath for long periods is hydrogen peroxide diluted with water. None of the other mouthwashes work for more than half an hour or so. If my breath is bad I use it straight away, maybw three times a day and it goes quickly. The other thing to try is digestive enzymes which help in the absorption of different foods, and lactase (not lactose) which helps in the digestion of milk. I think they really help as well. I still suffer with the condition sometimes but I think now I have it under control.

    I'm 40 and I always used to have quite a heavy discharge which never caused me any problems and didn't have any unpleasant smell. However, in the last 2 years my vag discharge has almost completely stopped but I have always got an unpleasant vag odour which I have been to the gp about and had various swabs, all negative. I went through an early menopause a year ago and was treated with hrt which made my periods return but my lack of vag discharge and unpleasant odour is still the same and I also have alot of tenderness and pain around the vagina and wearing jeans and trousers is now getting very uncomfortable. I have been given ortho-gynest cream to use by my gp nurse. I would really like my natural vag discharge to return and for the embarassing vag odour to disappear but it won't. can anyone tell me what is the cause of this vagainal odour? Is it to do with the menopause and is it normal as I feel very embarassed about this??

    try buying & taking/eating sum acidophillus yohgurt unless u buy sum acidophillus capsules. it doesnt cure th odour completely 4 u-i dont no wot kind of pill or medicine does. but it temporarily gets rid of th embarressing odour 4 u with ur partner etc. i dunno! try tht & c if it wrks or helps uz. it does & helps my problem. thats y i always have 2 regulary take it/eat it. so now iv startd buying & using sum 'puritans pride- acidophilus plus pro biotic with pectin' capsules. there's 100capsules in a jar 4 just $10 wot lasts longer & is cheaper 2 purchase than the yohgurt that is deer & has an expiary d8 on it. i only take 1 capsule evry morning or every 2nd morning, just try/take whats comfortable & works 4 u 4 ur body.

    im not sure y my comment up there keeps having that ' & ' so just ignore & dont worry about that, i cant get rid of it off there.

    Hi. I have suffered from halitosis and still not sure whether the bad odour is coming out from my mouth or not but i am feeling much better now. Brushing,flossing and scraping tongue not less than thrice per day didn't work for me. I was wondering from where the odour is coming...i have very good teeth to be honest...but had bad breath. Now i realized its the food that i eat that is causing bad odour. First thing be cautious while choosing something to eat. Please do avoid strong odorous food. I did the same and now feel my breath is kinda fresh(don't know how they smell to others). I guess i am getting paid for the sacrifices i made.

    I am 33 years old and i have suffered from a vaginal dishcharge and a fishy odour since i was 14 years old. There is no burning or itching with the discharge, and the odour is just coming from the skin of my vagina. I have seen doctors and had swabs done, but they all come back negative. This cannot be normal. The discharge is constant and never stops, sometimes its bad and other days there's very little. This problem has gone on long enough and i am extremely depressed. I have read about BV and it sounds like thats the problem. Can it be hereditary? I also suffer from an anal fishy odour, is this linked? I need help as i feel the doctors i'm seeing are not taking me seriously
