  • You have to find the cause of the smell. It is something in her room, clothes, shoes, bedding etc.. Good luck finding it

  • Why is this in Religion and beliefs?

    Anyway How old is she? Could it be her person that stinks like body odor, stinky feet, not washing or wiping properly? The smell that comes from my 16yr old brothers room is gag worthy. If the smell moved when she did, it stands to reason that it is Her that has the smell. Get her a new clinical deodorant and stress the importance of being clean.

  • If the smell moved with her, then it has to do with her. Check her bedding, furniture, clothes, etc. I don't know how old she is, but make sure she's washing properly, wiping properly after using the bathroom, and if necessary, take her to the doctor to ensure she doesn't have any infections or something that might be giving her an odor.

    If it comes and goes, I'd focus mostly on her, though.

  • Another thought: how does it come and go? Is it like once a month? Not to be gross, but if it only happens once a month, maybe you need to have a discussion about hygiene and periods, if she's old enough for it to possibly be that.

  • Could it be from drugs?? How old is your daughter? If the Oder is coming and going its something that she is or isn't doing! I would be having a talk about proper hygiene and if they Oder is still there after that talk it could be from drugs some drugs give off odera when being smoked.
