Garlic Smell

I feel like I am going crazy but this isn't the first time its happened so I'm not sure what to do.

I noticed yesterday that my hands started to smell like garlic again. I have not cooked with garlic in months. I've read to run my hands over stainless steel but that doesn't even take the smell away. Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, do you know what caused it?

The only mediciation I am on is the Nuva Ring.

Try washing your hands with lemon and salt. See if that helps.

I have only had garlic hands when I have used it for cooking. Weird. I like the smell so it wouldnt bother me.

Have you ate garlic recently? If so it could be comming out of your pores.

I will try this when I get home tonight.


I feel like tht would take the smell away if I was actually dealing with garlic but I haven't been dealing with garlic at all.


I'm becoming very nervous as I am reseraching a lot of information points to fibromyalgia... however, the only pain I constantly have is back pain.

Nope, I've been eating salad with vinegar dressing.

That's what the salt is for. Kinda like an exfoliant (sp) my husband sometimes gets this garlicy smell and i make him shower with lemon and salt and generally it works. Do your hands sweat a lot? Or just say hot even if they arnt sweaty?
