Oily skin smell

Common Questions and Answers about Oily skin smell


Avatar n tn Hello, I have always had this issue since i was a teen. I have oily skin (scalp, face, arms, shoulders, chest, legs) and for some reason it gives off an odor, it's not B.O., it's kind of an oily odor. My issue is this odor gets into everything, clothes, bed, carpet and I can't get rid of the smell. I've used odor killers and carpet cleaners and nothing seems to work. It's embarassing when I have people over because of the smell.

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 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! i still have deep scars (holes) in my face because of the acne. and it seems that my some of these holes has gotten a little bigger than before.
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 My 9 yr old Shih Tzu has very oily skin and scratches several times a day. She was a puppy mill mama that I rescued 1.5 yrs ago. She is on a raw diet and is at a healthy weight. I have ruled out Seborrhea as she does not stink at all. It seems to be worse when she's been outside. I heard about airborne allergies from grass, weeds, etc., and suspect that might be her issue. Thoughts or advice anyone?
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 My 11 year old in the last year or 2 has developed smelly scalp. No one else in the family has it and the children and I often share hair brushes so it does not seem contagious. I had grandma double check but no one else's head stinks and my younger kids actually smell really good. 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.
Avatar f tn Anyways but i have noticed my hair is getting oily! I never had that problem. I usially go 3 days before it gets oily. But now i have to wash it the next day because its super oily! Is anyone else like this? When did you notice your hair growing? I am 16 weeks 5 days.
Avatar f tn Is it...I know this is a stupid question but..is it really oily? I was going to pick some up, but I don't want my skin to be oily all the time. Does it absorb quickly? That's my main thing, I want to combat stretch marks but not be oily or greasy.
Avatar n tn I sweat alot and when I do, it seems to smell like I have wet my pants. It is an all over smell. It is very embrassing problem because my smell senses aren't that great. I don't realize it until someone makes a remark. To be honest, I'm really not sure if it is just an amonia smell. I take a shower in the morning before I go to work and at night when I get home. I use Mitchem deodarant and shower to shower bath powders. But I still get ugly looks and bad comments.
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 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 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 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 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 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.
