for the ladies who have dealt with men with horrible BO

What, if anything has worked? A specific deodorant, bodywash, anything? My dad smells so bad. He takes a bath sometimes twice a day but his BO could knock a buzzard off a sh*t truck at 100 yards. I can't go in the kitchen when he's in there, and when he takes my 8 month old and I get him back I have to give him a bath cause he smells just like the old man. Any ideas? I have bought him that special "man bodywash" but his BO just laughs at that.

  • Does he drink? He may have a liver disorder or kidney problem or even be a diabetic. Take him or make him go to a doctor for this problem. GL

  • yeah my husband smelled really bad when he would come home from feild ops and stuff when he was in the marine corps. I buy him swagger from Old spice it works wonders!

  • If the BO is truly as bad as you say it is, I would be wary of something more serious than hygiene. Let me know later, how this turns out and call his doctor today. Just tell them what you said here, and see what they say. If he is a diabetic or has hypertension, you need to have him evaluated soon.

  • there is some extra strength deodarant it is stronger than other on the shelves and that might help if not i would try to give him some cologne so he can put some on to die down the smell. he might want to go see a doc too
