I have done everything possible to get rid of my body odor, but nothing seems to work. I bathe twice a day, brush my teeth twice, sometimes 3x, I use dental floss frequently, I use lemon before bathing and good deodorants, but people keep frowning and cover their nose when I come around. I need urgent help.

Get some chlorophyll from the health food store & take as directed. The problem has to be solved from the inside. You need to detox.
Another hint is if your underarm odor is like pennies, you are lacking in copper. I know it sounds silly, but our bodies are made up of trace minerals. A deficiency of any of them makes out bodies react abnormally. I hope that helps. The others suggestions are spot on, too.

I am in Thailand, have been using coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oils instead of deodorant. I sweat a lot here in this climate. Funny enough I sweat more with cotton t-shirts or tank tops than cotton dress shirts. I do yoga, play badminton, and keep active. Even after a shower my towels have that sweet vinegary smell. I use mostly organic shampoos, conditioners, and body wash. When I use deodorant spray, I don't have any BO and sweat much much less. But I don't like using deodorant spray.
I eat probiotic yogurt (home made), drink lots of water, eat vegetables, little meat, and very healthy.
I'm going to try anti-bacterial soap to see if that stops it. But I'm wondering if there is something I can do to stop the sweet smell. No one has complained about it, but I can smell it in yoga and badminton. Even my laundry smells sweet. I suppose it's better than a bad smell. But again when using spray deodorant (very little of it), it's gone and I sweat much much less.
Nobody is going to complain to you about it. That would be rude. They'll just talk to each other about it behind your back.
The smell is stronger than you think it is. We all get used to our own body odors but they smell offensive to others.
there also could be a health problem?im no expert but ive heard a sweet smell can be linked to diabetes,worth checking out?good luck x
Okay I am a heavy man. I don't know why, but the last 5 years I've been smelling like poop. I shower 3 times a day, wipe my self with wipes after I poop and still smell foul. Please help me out. I'm having problems with my social life. I don't go anywhere because of my smell. Any ideas?

How do you get rid of body odors? I have tried different deodorants, but nothing really works. Thanks.
This is what I've been doing, hopefully it will work on some of you.
Sweating and odor, I will admit to it. I have tried a few things out there with no success till now. I thought I let you know what is working for me that I just discovered.
I have B.O. problems and wet circles under my armpits. Deodorant doesn't work for me.
