  • certain things in your diet can contribute,but mostly I thinkit's just your particular body chemistry.

    shaving body hair helps lessn the odor.

  • Sometimes blocked pours and for some its the production of too many hormones or an overproductive sweat gland

  • certain illnesses can cause an odor. If you have liver failure, kidney failure or severe diabetes, you can have body odor that is hard to control.
