Avatar n tn My face has been always oily. I took acutane for a year ad a half and my acnes had stopped compelely. Since then, my face started to smell very bad, when i rub on the sides of my face and smell it, it smells triabble. A lot of times when i rub my skin a bit hard, a white puss comes out ( not a lot) of some specific areas ( the white thing is the same as when you squeeze a regular acne) but it sometimes the white thing seems to be dry!
Avatar f tn About 6 months ago, I started experiencing super oily skin and MASSIVE acne!!! I am 28 yrs old and have never had acne problems before!! I switched my foundation to an oil-free version and it's better, but by no means healed... Trying the dish detergent on my hair tomorrow... DOCTORS, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! I don't understand why - without any change to product or daily life - one would experience such drastic and sudden changes!?!
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 f tn I have some really bad odor under my breast, they are fairly large but age, weight and gravity have set in, they are kinda shiny(oily) skin underneath, what can I do to help with this?? I also have a issue with vaginal odor, in which I use summers eve products (NOT) douche though. what can I do to get rid of it??
Avatar f tn After doing some research, I believe it is an over production and build up of sebum on the scalp. I have had acne problems, have rosacea, and my skin and hair is very oily. I found balancing shampoos on line that are supposed to prevent sebum build up. Aveda is one of them, but I haven't tried it. Sebum: substance with an oily consistency produced by the sebaceous glands. It lubricates hair, is an antifungal/antibacterial, and imparts waterproofing properties to the skin.
Avatar n tn I'm only 22 and I started developing that vinegary odor that Calligra described under my breasts since I was about 16. Also, the skin under my breasts gets rather goose-fleshy and swollen when I sweat. While its not fun to deal with, I'm glad I'm not the only one, it is a rather awkward topic. I will be trying out some of these tips, thank you everyone!

Avatar n tn I get excessive sweating and quite a bad odour, and this leaves the skin feeling very sticky and seems quite oily especially around the crotch. The skin is a little red but not excessively so. If I bath or shower the skin does not lose any of its stickiness. I have been to a doctor before and was recommended Daktacort hydrocortisone cream, this tends to help but does not clear it up.
Avatar n tn I have been waking up in the middle of night soaked in sweat and the smell left on the bedding is that of like movie theater butter for popcorn. Very oily. Again it is only me who smells it. I don't want to be the chick who smells like buttered onions which is all I seem to smell lately. And I tend not to use perfumed items like soap and detergents. I do take Zoloft which I heard can make you sweat. And I don't eat onions and have not had popcorn or oily foods because I know that's bad.
Avatar m tn Not everyone that has oily skin has this rancid cheese odor on their T-zone areas. I don't have a skin infection to my knowledge; my skin is clear without any redness or infection. Any thoughts or suggestions. I don't eat junk foods anymore. I've had this condition for quite sometime now. I remember when I was a tween, that underneath my chin smelled of cheese if I rubbed it with my fingers. That was years ago; now it's my T-zone area.
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 n tn listen folks, alcoholics produce a smell that resembles a mildew odor that they sweat out of their skin. Only from the heavy drinker It seems. This odor can cling to everything !! I'm not sure but I think their bodies get to a point where it can't filter the alcohol completely so it lingers & spoils only to come out through perspiration.
Avatar f tn I am 23 years old and caucasian. For a few years there has always been an odor in my bedroom. It smells like an odd Body odor type of smell, but it's not my body. Recently, I have become very stressed and have experienced a bit of depression. Now there is a very strong smell in my room where it's no longer a stale type of smell. It is absolutely horrible, I have to air out my room on a regular basis.
Avatar m tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of fungal infection or tinea cruris. The damp groin is an ideal site for fungi to multiply. Wear cotton underwear and change them twice a day. and do not share other people’s towels. Application of local antifungal cream(terbinafine, clotrimazole, econazole, ketoconazole, miconazole) and oral antifungal drugs are the mainstay of treatment.
Avatar n tn My scalp and face burn. When i get near a strong odor or the sun this makes it burn worse. I also have flaking around my hair line, in my eyebrows and my eyes burn. Please help no one can figure this out and it seems to be getting worse.

Avatar f tn I have never had any problems with oily skin or oily hair ever. I wash my hair daily and condition. I have not changed my daily regimen in 2 years One thing I have tried was applied Shower to Shower powder to my hair before going to bed and washed out in the morning (not the sexiest looking thing at night but it helps). It drastically reduced the oil, but came back 2 days later. The only thing I worry about is clogging the glands that are producing the oil, so I don't do it daily...
Avatar n tn It has this distinct odour that is different from my sweat smell...... it is almost as it the skin is very oily but because of where it is, it has become damped..... Anyone else has this condition? Anyone knows what to do.....?
Avatar f tn So when I came back home I tried to eat healthy, lots of vegetables, limited proteins, no processed foods, etc... Strange thing happens from here. My skin odor disappeared and gas became nearly odorless, but strange smells started to follow me. First I thought it was environment problem because it was not human BO. It was raw sewage smell or strange ammonia odor(not women's odor, pure ammonia smell), sometimes dirty clothe smell sometimes just undescribable something.
Avatar n tn I think some kind of odor or some thing else is causing this. My hands become dry and gets some bad odor and some times I get bad odor from my scalp. I do bath twice a day and ware nice cloths. If any one find any solution please let me know.
Avatar m tn Fecal odor from the anus is driving me crazy! I have tried everything to resolve the situation to no avail and feel as though it's to the point of nearly destroying my life. I'm so very very embarrassed by it that I'm practically a social recluse and avoid everything. I am meticulous about personal hygiene and I dread being at work or college because its so very embarrassing.
Avatar n tn it almost feels sticky and very rarely it gives off a weird odor. The skin is very shiny and its starting to look scaley. weird new folds in the skin are appearing....it looks like the skin along side the frenulum(parallell)is cracking and stretching out somewhat. if i take the wrinkly skin and stretch it out a clump of dark red spidery lookin veins appear.....but when the skin is loose you cant see the veins...it just looks like wrinkles. when im errect my penis looks normal.....
Avatar f tn Also, a rare metabolic disorder called Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) causes a fish odor however in some instances the odor can be similar to the smell of faeces.
