Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 05 May 2022

Body odour is the undesirable smell generated by bacteria on the skin damaging down the acids in your sweat. If it causes you distress or it changes considerably, you must only see your GP about your body odour. Men are more likely to have body smell since they often tend to sweat more than women. See your GP if: your sweating or body odour is triggering you distress; you see a considerable change in your body odour; you all of a sudden begin to sweat more than normal. A body smell trouble can usually be handled by getting rid of excess skin microorganisms, which are in charge of the smell, and maintaining the skin in the affected area tidy and completely dry.
