Avatar f tn Hi Kate, Certain skin conditions can cause body odor like yeast, or an overgrowth of bacteria; oily skin can as well. Advanced liver and kidney disease can also cause an odor.
Avatar n tn My husband, 59, has oily hair and it has a odor that I call "old man smell". His hair has always been oily, but it seems in the last few years it has really become a real oil slick. The smell has also been noticed in the last couple of years. Shampoos don't do a thing. He can wash his hair and I can still smell the odor and the grease will return almost right away. What is causing this and what can he do?
Avatar m tn I have very oily skin. My T-zone areas are especially oily. I've noticed that underneath my chin, my cheeks, around my nose and mouth, my skin produces a strong rancid cheese type smell. It's especially prominent after eating anything fried or greasy. As a result I have drastically stop consuming fried foods. The odor still remains though. Not matter how many times I wash my face, the odor is still there. My skin is oily but "clear.
Avatar n tn Hello, Although perspiration is basically odorless, it can take on an unpleasant smell when it comes into contact with bacteria on your skin. Most often, it's the bacterial breakdown of apocrine sweat that causes a strong odor. Take regular baths and wear loose cotton clothes.Pls avoid taking heavy fatty meal and eat nutritious,healthy food. There is no medical condition as such which causes smelling or oiliness of the hair.

Avatar f tn My hygiene is impeccable but after I shower within an hour my skin goes oily and the smell comes. I have spots on my chin and ear lobes and when the puss is squished out it smells of this horrible baby poop smell. I can smell it on my self when I wear a mask. It’s really effecting my self confidence and relationships. I’ve also been told that my breath smells fishy, despite paying 4000 to have all my teeth done.

Avatar f tn I have tan but oily skin. When ever I try a new brand its always gives me more of a pink tone when I really need a golden tan color. Anyone know of a good liquid & powder foundation for oily tan skin that won't make me break out it having oily skin? Also one that will last but I'm young so I don't need a strong cover up because I have no wrinkles.
Avatar f tn Second baby was a boy. Had no greasy hair nor oily skin. My third was a boy and had no greasy hair nor oily skin. Im thinking im having a girl because her hormones and mine are raging. I feel so ugly. Ive never had greasy hair nor oily skin or acne when I was a teenager or pregnant except with my first girl. I dont know what to use. My face is sensitive already so I use minimal product. I also usually have beautiful natural skin so I dont use makeup except a little bronze.
Avatar n tn Is it an oily smell by any chance? My husband has a strange, oily smell, almost like car oil but he's not a mechanic. I too wondered if it had to do with his drinking or health somehow.
Avatar f tn Mine was totally fine until I started my third trimester....now it's extremely oily and I have patches of flaky skin that are raw red itchy and very oily....does anyone have some clue as to what causes this and what will make it go away!!??
Avatar n tn The bad odor is due to sweat coming in contact with the bacteria on the skin. Diabetes is also a reason for odor in sweat. Coffee, aerated drinks, spicy and oily food all make us sweat more. Try to reduce these in your diet. Drink plenty of water, fresh fruit juices, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables in the diet. Reduce intake of proteins. After a bath dry yourself well and use antiperspirants. Wear loose clothes made of natural fibers, preferably cotton.
Avatar f tn During the summer when she swims in a clorinated pool and washes her hair every day the smell subsides. Which makes me think it is fungal or oil. During the winter her hair looks oily and stinks immediately after she washes her hair. I smell her head when it is still wet just out of the shower and it still stinks. She hates washing her hair so right now it only gets washed 1 or 2 times a week and I keep on warning her it smells from a distance.
Avatar f tn i have extremely oily skin and i think its because i use my acne medications such as differin and duac but even though i wash my face 3 times a daii it is still oily and its worse during parties because i cant wash my face then..? wat should i doo..any herbal remedies as well?
Avatar f tn What can i use for oily skin & some.breakouts..
Avatar f tn Does your skin tend towards oily or dry? Black skin is usually more resistant to wrinkles as it ages than white skin, but other than that, the color matters less than the oily/dry question in terms of treatment (except about the elbows, where it is a good idea to exfoliate often if the skin tends to look "ashy" there). If your skin tends towards oily, you can use stronger and more astringent soaps (made for the face) and if it breaks out, some of the vitamin A-based products.
470885 tn?1326329037 yes my skin is changing bad i normally have oily skin but now i have very bad oily skin and i break out bad zits like crazy the many joys of pregnancy
Avatar n tn It is unbelievable how many people are posting all over the country about this problem. And doctors are NOT HELPING. None of their advice or medications work. I too developed this problem about 6 years ago and have been battling it ever since. I've tried everything. I do not have any flaking and very little itching. I have no sores or anything on my scalp. Yet if I don't wash my hair for 3 days it develops a nasty odor that is not the normal scalp odor one would expect.
Avatar m tn Washing does little to seem to stop the oil production and in many cases makes things seem to get even more oily with irritation. Are there medications that can help reduce oily skin?
Avatar f tn I'm having a boy and the same thing happens to me. My cheeks and t zone are dry but my nose is oily. I use the gel lotion from clinique because it's really lightweight or just put lotion on the dry spots. Have you tried a less harsh cleanser?
Avatar m tn t use a soap that is too strong as it will cause your skin to overreact. Try to find a light moisturizer made for people with oily skin. I have read not to eat flour and milk but I do love my carbs. The final option that I found was to take and acne drug but I don't think this is the option for you if the oil issue has not caused acne problems.
