Stevey Stank Ass asks:

Up to a few months ago I was a very popular college student with lots of friends and had no trouble getting girls. Now this problem I have made me drop out of college, lose girlfriends, and my friends are disgusted to hang out with me.

My problem is that all of a sudden my ass really started to stink even after a shower. I mean it smells like I shit myself or like I just took a shit and didn't bother to wipe my ass. I can asure that I don't shit myself and I wipe my ass until clean. I even tried that sphincterine stuff which seems not to work for me. This problem made me drop out of college to spare myself the embarassment and haven't gotten laid in a while which kills me because girls ask me why I don't want to hang out with them and the 'sick' excuse is getting quite old. I seriously have no idea what to do, it is really bothering me because I am ashamed just to go out of my house. It is weird because when I sit down it feels like theres shit in my ass but when I go to wipe nothings on the napkin and the sphincterine just blends with the smell. If you could please help me because now I just sit at home like a loser and cannot hang out with my friends without feeling ashamed.

Dear Steve,

Thanks for the question!

Much as I hate to admit it, you are going to have to see your MD about this one. There are many causes of fecal odor--constipation being one. Other causes may be anatomic considerations. Examples include rectal prolapse, weakness of the anal sphincter or decreased rectal compliance. (I hate it when my rectum doesn't comply, don't you?)

Your doctor might consider doing a flexible sigmoidoscopy to inspect the colon and anus. Other tests you may want to discuss with your MD include an endorectal ultrasound to evaluate for structural abnormalities or anorectal manometry to evaluate for anal sphincter dysfunction.

Some studies have shown that intake of vitamin K can control fecal odor, but I don't have any information on this.

Good luck!

Okay, I am a 18 year old female who has been dealing with this horrible issue for the past two years. Pretty much every symptom described on this site, I've had... Horrible smell, incomplete bowel evacuation senstation, itching, stomach churning etc.
It has completely ruined my life and I was close to suicidal at one point. I was so ashamed of my problem that I started excluding myself from outings. I began losing friends and my boyfriend. I decoded it was time to do something about it.
I saw my GP countless times who gave me advice that didn't seem to be working... But I didn't give up. I got a referral to a gastroenterologist and she diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). She helped me with a number of options to get my life back on track INCLUDING seeing a pyschologist as I was dealing with alot of stress and anxiety.
These steps forward are helping get rid of the smell and my constipation which she believe was causing the smell.
I know you might not want to take the advice of an 18 year old girl, but please... Help yourselves like I did and see a doctor... No matter how embarrassing it is talking to them, imagine how much worse it is going through life being a smelly person. If it doesn't work straight away, do not give up. There IS help out there.

I need a cure!?!?!?!?!? I am tired of smelling like ass and my ass feeling wet all the time. Please help I want to be normal again. I need some good advice please. SEVERE CANDIDA GIRL what type of probiotics are you taking???

Well I never knew so many people had real arse problems. I haven't read all of the comments but mine is an anal wart problem. Thankfully it doesn't smell but I will be glad when I get rid of them. Aldara seems to be working but as far as I am concerned the sooner the better and I hope they don't come back .

What a pain in the arse!

Dear AC ... I can't help you much with the stinky ass problem but if you are in danger of losing your mine you should make sure you have filed your claim properly.

Oh ... If people only talk behind your back, how do you know about it?

Also ... Has your doctor smelled your ass?

Eat chilies and feel the burn!!

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!

Ebarrassed, when u had d anal odor problem, did u also have feelings of incomplete evacuation, darrhea or constipation

Anonymous Coward's picture

Having read almost every post on this site, I would draw your attention to just two.

The post about tension causing a pelvic floor disorder makes perfect sense and finding a way to handle your stress differently could be key.

The other suggests Betadine antiseptic cream as a cure.

Having tried everything else I would urge all of you to start with these two.

Some of the other problems on here relate to BV- Bacterial Vaginitis, Hiatal hernia, cysts, hemorrhoids, fissures and fistulas.

Hope this helps

I too have suffered form this horrible problem...From grade 6-about grade family couldn't smell it but people at school could, how embarrassing...I used to avoid people and skip classes because of it...I dropped out of high school, ruining my life. I am 28 years old now and no longer have the problem, I guess it just went away. but I was to scared to go to the doctor about it...really stupid, I thought they would be like...What? I don't know whats wrong with you. I used to stick q-tips up my bum to check if I had any feces ..and there was always was really odd. I can't figure it out to this day but am still curious..I wish the internet was around when I was young...I used to take baths every morning just to try and solve the I would spill some perfume on some toilet paper and wipe with that through out the day...didn't work. like everyone else on here I was an extremely clean person...I couldn't understand it...I remember someone saying out loud that it smells like rotten shit in here...I will never forget how that made me feel, I thought God wanted me to have no friends.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I am amazed that there are so many young people complaining about this condition. I am 45 and have had it for the last 12 years..

It began when I developed an anal fissure. I was advised to use damp toilet tissue to avoid aggravating the fissure. I had diarrhea for 6 weeks. Went back to doctor and was given a stool hardener. Only took 1 but could feel something in my ass rip, probably the fissure.

The diarrhea lasted about 5 years mixed with bouts of severe constipation. Doctors suggested stretching my ass using a dilator. Again I felt something rip. I began to get huge abscesses around my anus.

Eventually I had a lateral sphincterotomy. to heal the fissure, it didn't work and a year later I had another one, they discovered a fistula and laid it open. For 6 weeks after this procedure I felt fine. No smell of shit, no discomfort. But I noticed if I drank alcohol I would become flatulent and it stank.

I began experiencing severe constipation, incomplete evacuation of my bowel etc. and the stink was back. At the time I seemed to be the only person who could smell it and even then I would only catch an occasional whiff.

I had an endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI, ultrasound., I was tested for viral and bacterial infections NOTHING.

I decided to cleanse, followed the You are what you eat book to the letter. Drank loads of water, juiced, got a colon cleanse, fiber tablets, probiotics EVERYTHING.

For a while I convinced myself I had it under control and I felt extremely healthy so I went about my day as normal. Eventually the constipation returned and the smell got worse.

After a year I went back to the doctors. I have seen at least 15 doctors, suggestions have ranged from hemorrhoids, pelvic floor disorder, prolapsed rectum, you name it. Every test proved inconclusive and expensive. I have tried Niacin, movecol, colpermin, mebeverine and many many more..

Then things took a turn for the worst the smell got so bad people could smell it from great distances. I mean people in other cars while I'm in mine, people on the other side of the street, people outside my house when I'm inside with all doors and windows locked. Needless to say doctors directed me to a psychologist.

I have given up with doctors, both private and NHS. I agree that GAD is part and parcel of this problem. It is impossible to live with the degree of stress this problem causes without developing anxiety issues.

I have been seeing a chiropractor for the last 12 months, I know it sounds odd. But he is concerned with fixing my body rather than thrusting the latest drug on me. He has helped my liver function, helped my gallbladder and basically reset my body.

Many symptoms that you guys have described have gone away. The bright yellowy brown residue on the loo paper, i believe this is bile. Blood on the loo paper is symptomatic of an anal fissure, Pains in your legs of lower back relate to stressing your pelvic floor from over wiping.

I still have the problem despite bathing 7 times a day. I stay home all day to reduce my stress levels. I bathe my anus with warm water before and after wiping. I have tried squatting on top of my loo instead of sitting, in fact there is nothing i haven't tried.

My advise is to try cleansing because it's good for you. Adjusting your diet may help a few but nothing drastic your body needs fiber and vitamins. Drink lots of water. Use a barrier cream at night to reduce cracking of the skin around your anus. Dab your anus to get rid of the bulk of crap then rub gentle until clean, Do not stretch yourself open to try and wipe every little bit, this will cause bigger problems..

Hi all -- please try avoiding sulfite preservatives. It's in everything, beer, wine, some breads, dough, bottled lemon juice etc etc some sodium chemicals etc, some canned food, processed meats etc. With me, my body can't deal with it (lack of an enzyme maybe)and it comes out my breath as hydrogen sulfite (sewer smell). Once I had long-life milk and someone asked who farted when I spoke-- this brand had the sulfite perservatives in it! Also I had the ass-smell--what fixed that was strong anti-biotics. I think I have some genetic code disorder that means I can't deal with the bad bacteria that soon take over... so from time to time the antibiotics are used. Pro and prebioticis are useful especially 'Lactobacillus' (not sure of the spelling) . Molybednum helps convert sulfite to sulfur so that can be useful too. Best to all --

StinkyBum -- If you scratch the anus instead of the hole, you might avoid getting poop under your fingernails.

Mark -- Sounds like you've popped a gasket, or maybe you need to a new O-ring. Your local auto parts store may be able to help with parts, but I'm betting they don't offer installation.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

Nick, those are not nuggets floating past you in the bath tub. They are your missing periods. You need to gather them up and add them to your post to make intelligable sentences. You might also want to check up your ass to see if there are any capital letters in there. I suspect there are some.

Hi, I'm Nick from Boston. Lately i have been noticing i have anal smell. and it seems to be getting stronger and as of late every morning i wake up i can feel the shit peeking out my butt so i go sit on the toilet for an hour to take a dump and then when i feel my anus is feeling like it has emptied all the shit i then sit in the bath to clean in and around my anus hole. and every morning as of late I've been in the bath holding back a fart and before i know it a nugget is floating past me even after i have done a morning shit thinking i got it all out and yet there is more when I'm in the bath can anyone help me as to why this is happening.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Hi, Every morning I wake up and scratch my balls. and notice i can smell a morning turd. then i look at my finger and notice a nugget hanging from the nail because i wear no panties to bed. How did the turd get on my balls ? is it from the nightly anal leakage is that normal to have nightly anal leaks then i have a shower i soap hard around my anal rim to get rid of any dried up nugget head that may have hanged out and dried during the night. but at work i still see people holding their breath and when i do up put my shoes on i can smell a dirty asshole. can anyone recommend a treatment as this is embarrassing sitting in church knowing everyone is breathing me in.

Severe Candida Girl :UPDATE Day 5 :'s picture

@ Beat IT...
I've tried ALL of that for 5 Years mind you I've been Smelling for 10 Years. I abused TONS of antibiotics in my early 20s which gave me a fungal infection. I was put on spornox,grysifilen (how ever its spelled),dyflucan,so on and so forth so thru IV even with NO results...I've been taking these Probiotics for 5 days (just started day 5 this morning) and already noticed a significant difference. My body odor has decreased 25% in 5 days. I KNOW that if I continue doing this for do this an entire month my odor should be a lot better or just about gone! This is the only thing that's helped me this much

Beat IT's picture

@severe candida GIRL :

Why the HELL does your DOCTOR not prescribe you SYSTEMIC ANTI-FUNGALS medications ? You cannot beat or hardly can beat systemic candida without medics.
But the MEDIC do cost much ( for a dozen of pills : 500+ Dollar)

Write me an email and i tell u why u are all not healed !

Severe Candida Girl :UPDATE Day 2:'s picture

Day 2!

Ok so today I woke up and opened a New bottle of Acidophius (Florajen but you can use any kind just make sure it has over 10 billion cfu in it) I took ALL 30 of them with a 32 oz cup of organic Lemon water. I did a fleet enema (putrid mushy stuff came out again with yeast) 1 hr later,showered and went to the track and power walked 45 minutes. I built up a really good sweat. Came back home showered really good and went to take care of business.


Today was Different than yesterday in that I'm beginning to feel the DIE OFF symptoms. Out of the blue I started feeling very confused,emotional, and very VERY WEAK. I just want to sleep I'm having these negative thoughts cross my mind like " you're never going to get rid of this smell" I KNOW its just the Die Off and that everyone who has Severe Systemic candidiasis goes thru this when the toxins are trying to purge themselves all at once.

In a way I'm glad that I'm going thru this. It's letting me know that it is working :) I think I would be worse if I weren't walking up a sweat everyday and doing enemas. Cause it would be trying to get out of my body longer. For some reason I'm not even hungry,haven't had ANY NOT A ONE CRAVINGS for sweets today, I did yesterday tho. I just want to sleep!

ANOTHER thing that I have noticed:

THICK yellowy/greyish very SMELLY Yeast came out when I went to the bathroom thinking I had to use #2 but it was Nothing but YEAST! It stunk up the entire bathroom smelled like rotted meat (seriously)

Tonkatruck09@ if you have any questions

P/S ......IBS No More I can't agree with you more about that! It is very true my Hydrotherapist told me that too

I'm about to force myself to eat 2 cucumbers and 1/2 avacado with sea salt

Tonight at 9pm I will be taking 15 capsules of Primal Defense Ultra (it has a mixture of different strains of probiotics)

This ends day 2,its only 5:30 pm but I'm about to take a power nap and shake this feeling off....hopefully :)

Stevey, Are you allergic to dairy products? When lactose intolerant people fart it sprays a fine mist onto your underwear and leaves your butt slimy too. Reduce or eliminate your dairy intake and this should help. Try this: At the end of the day smell the seat of your pants. It should stink. Now, after 4 weeks of no dairy products smell your pants again. "BINGO, no more stink".

When other people can smell it, then it can't just be all in your head!

Spence09 -- I said changing the diet, correctly, helps 99% of all people. That's the part most people miss--they don't change their diet in the correct ways.

If you eat carbs separately from proteins, and eat more fresh fruits and veggies than all other foods each day, then you will be on the path to changing your diet correctly.

And your body will respond to those changes as all human bodies do, by beginning to heal itself.

Other suggestions work only for some people and/or temporarily because they are only treating symptoms, but these dietary suggestions work for all who give them an honest try because they treat the cause of the problem.

The medical doctor who wrote the book linked below used these same dietary changes at his clinic for over 30 years, helping his patients heal themselves of every conceivable health problem, naturally--without pills or surgery--and today more and more doctors are doing the same.

Open your eyes AND your mind to the power of food!

Severe Candida Girl :UPDATE Day 1 :'s picture

Day 1 :

Ok I know I said Yesterday that I was going to take 10 acidophilus 3 times a day but I decided to take the ENTIRE Bottle of Florajen 20 Billion CFU, 30 capsules this morning All At once on an EMPTY STOMACH. I know it is a bit much but I've done A LOT of research and well I'm ok with it.

So about an hour after I took the Bottle I did a (4oz) Fleet enema and a real PUTRID smell and mushy poop came out. Mind you my diet has been mainly avacados and cucumbers with every now and again grilled chicken breast.

After the Enema I took a Rinse Shower and Went to the track and walked for 50 minutes. I built up a good sweat. Went back to the house and took another shower,washed the clothes I had on.

I went to the health store to get FIVE more bottles of Florajen (strain is acidophilus) for the next five days with a bottle of Organic lemon juice. It's my week's supply. It cost me 64$ all together which is nothing compared to the amount of money I've spent on ordering out and bullshit ebay.

I noticed something weird today. My senses my ability to smell things was better. I was able to smell my funky car and everything around me. I lwas light headed before I did the enema but right after that cleared up a bit but really got better once I sweated like a pig while power walking. I called my holistic doc and she said that it is IMPORTANT to sweat,poop,pee while taking large doses of probiotics cause my body is desperately seeking to RELEASES these toxins OUT of the body. So that is what I've been doing and I'm not feeling too bad.

My smell today was medium funky on a scale 1-10 i'd say it was a 7. Yesterday it was a 14 or 11. So Idk, I am still skeptical cause I've been suffering from these SMELLY ODOR Since I was 20, I'm now 29 but I will say that I think this may just be it!

After the walk I came home peeled 2 Cucumbers, 1 avacado mixed them together poured organic lemon juice on it with tons of sea salt and threw the last chicken breast I had on the George Forman and Ate it up! I can honestly say that I was full and satisfied!
After that I went back to the track and walked another 40 minutes. So here I am sweated out. But I don't smell like I usually do I smell like funky but nothing like yesterday. It is 6pm I'm about to take my final dose of Probiotics which will be PRIMAL DEFENSE ULTRA I'm going to take 15 of them. Which brings today's total of probiotics to 45 :)

I'm doing this because I know that I'm going to need a higher dosage to really make a difference. I've been stinking for YRS and my candida is now systemic and severe not to mention the leaky gut I have due to all the years of antibiotics.

Well you guys keep your heads up and remember that EVERY path that is crossed is crossed for a reason and there's a reason why you're reading this posting right now.

I will be posting daily to update you all and let you know how and what all happened through out my day and the results,if any I'm having.

Severe Candida Girl's picture

Well for 7 days my diet has consisted of
Avacado 1. Maybe 1.5 a day
3 Cucumbers
1 Grilled Chicken Breast
Organic Bread Ezekiel 4:9
2-3 Egg Whites (ate it with Bread mentioned above)
Organic Ground Stone Corn Chips

Probiotics (1 x's 3 a day)

BUT as of 5 Days ago I was Encouraged by GREENBAY27 (He CURED himself IBS GROUP) To Triple the Dose of Probiotics....It is Day 5. Didn't really notice except for being really Weak/Tired (Candida die off) I don't think I got as ILL as others who I've read about Curing themselves in a Matter of (3 Weeks) Of BB/Body Odor by taking TRIPLE THE AMOUNT OF PROBIOTICS for I think about 2-3 weeks IF that long. Said He Expirienced TERRIBLE Die off symptoms for a Week but was Cured about a Week later.

Starting Tomorrow I'm. Going to Cut Out Chicken,Corn chips,Ezekiel Bread 4:9 and Just Eat Avacados,Cucumbers,Almonds,Sunflower Seeds and Juice Collard Greens with 1 Granny smith apple for ONE WEEK...

I'm going to Really OVER DO IT with the Probiotics
I'm going to Take 10 Capsules of Acidophilus (20 Billion CFU) 3 X'S A DAY Which Equals a Bottle of Florajen which comes with 30 Capsules. So I'm basically going to Buy 4 Bottles of this Stuff and GO HARD for One week. I'm expecting to get really ILL from the Die Off but I'm ready and TIRED of this Smell and Living like a Rat in a Hole!! I'm not the First Person to do this Google it Type in "I Cured my Body odor with Probiotics"

I'm like you ALL I don't believe everything I read anymore I've tried about everything but this and REALLY Sticking to a Healthy candida diet so this Week I'm GOING TO DO IT!

I am going to Post An Update EVERYday to Let you ALL know exactly what's going on and IF it really works.

I'm 29 been STINKING since I was 20 a few yrs ago I found out I have SYSTEMIC CANDIDIASIS of the Colon and Possibly Leaky Gut but had too much old Fecal matter and YEAST in my colon to complete the Colonoscopy...CRAZY!

Products I will be taking starting tomorrow:

Florajen (the Strain is Acidophilus) 20 Billion CFU
(11$ cost me)

How I will be Taking them :
10 xs 3 a Day which is the Entire Bottle

Primal Defense Ultra (Has DIFFFERENT Strains Mixed)
(22$ for a 90 count bottle)

How I will be Taking them:
10x's 3 a Day

Because I KNOW I'm going to have some Killer DIE OFF Symptoms due to the Toxins being released so Fast I'm going to be doing the Following:

Daily Fleet Enemas (before Bedtime) IF I'm REALLY bad off I may due TWO a day until the Die Off gets better

IF I'm Not too sick or Weak I'm going to power walk for atleast 30 Min a day.

Your body HAS TO RELEASE these Toxins in order for us to get better and Balance the PH/Flora in our Gut

Facebook name is Candida Sufferer send me a requesti will add you. I will Post Daily on here so stay Posted if you're curious as to how this goes and IF IT REALLY WORKS. I sure hope so cause I can't take living like this anymore.

Pretty but smelly's picture

I have had this problem for 3 years and counting. I smell like poopy, but I am clean down there and it feels moist and occasionally itches. I have seen about 7 different doctors and had a colonoscopy and they all said they can't see anything wrong with me and its all in my head. But I know its not because it feels weird and I occasionally get a whiff. And people are always saying someone smells like shit. I have also tried chlorophyll tablets, fiber pills, colon cleanses, apple cider vinegaer, hyomax(presciption), and I have been trying different diets. I tried not eating starch with meats and more veggies and fruits but I just got constipated and it made things worse. I had uncontrolable gas and bad adominal pains for 2 days almost. So I stopped that. I have been on and off trying the Candida Diet, but I am having a hard time with this one because I will do it for two weeks(this a really hard diet by the way) and then people will start talking like its worse at work and then I get all flustered and upset and I cave when I get home and eat sugars and drink alchol to drown my pain. I can't tell if this Candida Diet is working or not and if its smells worse because they are dying off or nothing is changing at all. Please help me. Please give me some advice. If diets are the best thing please provide my with your knowledge or whatever there is to cure this. I am hurting here. :(

AnonGuy's picture

I'm back again. I'm aware that I must sound like a spam bot but I have been using the pants and (whether it's all in my head or not) I feel much less anxiety. I even ripped a big one in the car on the way to class, twice, and couldn't smell anything. =) To stop the 'swishing' sound (which isn't even horribly horrible), I'm thinking of using some double-sided tape on inner and outer thigh. So that's my little update and I guess there's not much more to say.. but I am curious why nobody seems to comment on my post. I'm here thinking that I found the silver bullet, and I empathize with all the posts, but idk why this idea is ignored. Sometimes for a second or two I still think I might smell, but then I realize that this stopped industrial farts, that it's airtight, and that it's impossible that anything could get out. Anyways, good luck everyone.

Spence09's picture

@Ughdah thank you for replying, and thats very strange because ive been having bad breath also. i need to look into this liver flush thingy.

UGHDAH's picture

Spencer, if your going to be on any diet make sure its anti-candida diet. many people with our condition are testing positive for bad bacteria in the stomach. If you cannot get prescription anti-candida drugs, I heard that biotin and grape seed extract work better than prescription. A toxic liver encourages bad bacteria because a healthy liver produces enzyme that eliminate bad bacteria. It's easy for liver to become toxic from all the chemicals added to food and drinks nowadays. Organic foods are best while on anti-candida diet. It's important to do regular liver flushes. Incomplete evacuation is a sign of bad digestion which can cause incomplete elimination. A DR said today that bad bacteria in the stomach leads to bad breath and gas.

Spence09's picture

@ Ughdah thank you for answering. Well I have not been constipated in a while and when I am the smell does not get worse or better it just stays the same, I'm just wondering why it starts to smell around other people? its very confusing and frustrating. I'm starting a diet right now a VERY strict diet so I'm trying to do my best. The odor is just really bad. and I know it's coming from my behind lol, I'm pretty sure its not in my mind like other people are saying. So if your saying its your liver then what should I drink, eat in that matter?

Ughdah's picture

hi Spencer, Ughdah here. thanks for answering. Before i had this odor issue, a relative of mine in a different country used to have a slight stale fecal scent anytime he was constipated. but as soon as he increased his vegetable intake, the constipation disappears with d odor. a lot of ppl with our condition claim dat the incomplete evacuation feelings disappear when they are cured of d odor. those cured of dis odor always say they now poop better and no more incomplete evacuation feelings. back to my relative with dis odor issue, i remember hearing dat he was told never to drink alcohol by doctors. wat can make a DR say dat to someone if not because they have liver problem?? So our problem got something to do with a bad/sensitive/toxic liver not producing enough digestive enzymes leading to bad digestion: incomplete evacuation + bad bacteria. a lot of success has been achieved by using this approach for treatment.

@ ugdahhh YES i do it always feels wierd down there and when im around more people it gets worse. im not really sure if it smells worse after the bowel movementss i never really noticed anything. please write back thank you.

Hi Spencer09, do u experience incomplete evacuation feelings all the time and does ur smell get worse after bowel movement?

@ IBSnomore okay, im really confused now by reading all of these things that different people are saying, some of them are saying that they have tried going to the doctors, getting medicine, exercising, changing diet all of that stuff that its not working and you said if you change diet and exercing it will work! i dont know about that yet.

other people are saying its all in your head and your just having anxiety or something like that. but when im out with other people thats when i smell it the worst and i can smell the odor too but i also think that some of it is in my head cause when im around more and more people i get nervous and then the stench get worse, idk maan just someone reply to this please!

Smelly Smells's picture

Well I Have been having this problem for a while. I know that i smell because i know for sure that all ov my senses work. ive asked one of my friends if i smell and she said no its all in my head. i know that its not in my head coz everytime im around someone they always say i can smell shit. && i can smell it to. i dont bother to say anything because i kno that its me and its very embarassing. i dont understand why this is happening to me because i have good personal hygiene. everytime i go in the bathrom though i come out smelling worse. i dont know whether i myself is making these smells come out of me due to the way im thinking or they are really present. To make it worse i dont even know where the smells are coming from.
This has been going on for a while now and i really cant take anymore. && 2 make it worse i have a 1 year old son h=and he is strongly being affected by it. I cant even take him anywhere because i feel scared. Arrgghhhh i need help immediately its just not fair.

UGDAH ... We human beings are the "only" people in the universe, there may be other sentient beings but they would be classified
as "nonhuman."

I think most people would be more inclined to make fun of someone who was stinky rather than someone who was gay or had an accent, of course the fun would be had behind the stinkers back.

Eat chilies and feel the burn!!

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!

Yes we humans are the most honest people in the universe. Ask any immigrant if they feel their thick foreign accent is an impediment to their success, and they'll say a resounding YES. Yet no one would ever tell the immigrant Im denying u a job cuz I hate ur accent. Ask a gay person if they feel their GAYNESS is impediment to their success anywhere, be it in music, corporate world, etc. The answer would be yes. Yet hardly anyone would tell a gay person Im denying you this job/music contract cuz ure so gay. So how would these 2 categories of people know that these characteristics of theirs impede their progress? Through hostility from others, ridicule, etc. But if someone has a bad body odor, people are more direct in letting the person know, because bad body odor is such a welcome development in society. People dont have to use techniques such as hostility, ridicule, when dealing with someone with bad odor, even though it is generally believed that bad hygiene results in body odor. We humans are actually more honest and nicer than that. We dont ridicule anyone for any reason, and we actually want other people to be more successful than us. We humans live to make our neighbors happier and more comfortable. So how dare anyone think a human being would ever make fun/ridicule another person just because the other person has body odor? No, no, thats not typical human behavior. We are very honest concerning things that would make other people more successful than us. So if we notice someone with bad body odor, we dont ridicule them at all. We wish for them to get better as soon as possible so they can have atleast that advantage over us. So if u feel u have body odor and uve never been physically held by another person who screams in ur face with tears in their eyes saying that u have body odor and they wont let go of u until the body odor dissapears, please, please talk to a psychologist fast, fast.....

I think this is the third time I've mentioned this but it's an update. I received the anti-flatulence pants in the mail today. I'm drinking and eating stuff that I think will make me smell tomorrow (I only have one 1-hour class and sit far away from everyone in a big auditorium). I got one size too small but I think I'll manage, anyways I will post update I guess when I think to. I thought my confidence would skyrocket on day one but I don't actually feel different. I'll see how tomorrow goes.

On a separate but related note, I wish there was some kind of 'hydrogen sulfide' meter or other simple chemical way to a) confirm abnormal smells and b) use it to determine what situations/foods increase it. There are lots of site but I like this site because it seems to be high on the google list and the stories are heartbreaking like mine.

Disadvantages of the undertec is that yes unfortunately they do make extra sounds as you walk but if you wear a 'loud' jacket or pants you can hide it. Also it's best to wear baggy pants it seems because there can be a minor amount of protrusion from the pad filter. If you don't have gas and actually just have 'leaking' then you could theoretically remove the filter and seal that part with some other air tight cloth or plastic and should solve it also. The cloth lets 'heat and moisture' transfer, although i'm not sure how that's possible if air can't get thru. I want to test whether it's truly airtight somehow soon. I'm at risk of rambling so I'll go.

High schoolers in here who dont wanna tell their parents... get creative and THINK. I feel for you and good luck.

Hi.. im 23 yrs old male having (you guessed it right) the same issue.. Mine started 4years ago after college.. Before, i am so hot! i can have anyone and i can do anything i wanted, without any worries... Then when I started working (i feel like im this cool guy seating in the center of the crowd during training).. I noticed it...reactions on they're faces..someone keeps on coughing, sneezing..clearing their throat.. One hot chick says that he likes me but he likes "someone who smells good". That hit me..even more.. when my paranoia started, ill go straight into the cubicle inside the C.R. to wipe it (just like everyone, its clean).. While im inside i heard the group of guys talking about me outside.. with how bad i smell.. i went AWOL on that job.. Im currently 2years now on this 2nd job that i have.. same story as before.. i still smells.. everything that ive read/adviced here i have tried (aside from those vitamins).. Always late for work cause i spend more than an hour scrubbing my bum..i just try to stay away from other people as much as i can..Others are not so sensitive, i stay close to them.. my other colleagues which i consider my friends now just got immune to my smell.. I just always wipe and spray my ass with cologne..

One thing i noticed.. I can poop every 4hours.. even though i dont feel the need to.. I still have poop inside me that i can release.. And then i feel better for the next 2hrs..

Things i think that caused me the problem...
-During college days, i would try and save money for nightlife and girls so i rarely eat lunch.. Which eventually changed when i started working.. (1 thing I consider to be the factor, change in diet)
-I had my teeth done, which made some of my tooth to be not real anymore (jacket).. I just noticed that there are things in it that doesnt smell so good..(chemicals and materials stuff) i guess what goes inside through my mouth makes me smells bad also..Makes my inside smells more bad compared to other people..
-When i had a Barium Enema done on me..the doctor commented that i have a long intestine (the straight away, almost to the finish line) which we guess so far..causes me not to be able to release all of the trash in one seating..

-My ass and asshole is so clean it even smells like a branded cologne/perfume.. But having poop inside me..almost in the finish line makes me smell.. That is so far my theory..

Im writing this today cause i almost had it.. with the insults.. but i have hopes and goals.. i wont let it destroy my future...

Spence09, the truth is already on these pages.

For anyone else here who refuses to crawl into a hole and "fucking accept it"... two (2) simple changes to your diet will change your life for the better, and the improvement will be noticeable in just days:

1. Stop eating starches in the same meal with meats.

2. Start eating more fresh fruits and veggies.

These guidelines are the essence of food combining, a method of eating developed by a medical doctor to restore proper function and vitality to the human body.

Following these two guidelines has helped countless thousands if not millions of people over the last 100 years to heal themselves of nearly every conceivable health problem, from mental disorders to chemical imbalances to birth deficiencies to advanced chronic disease including cancer.

The smelly ass problem falls in there somewhere, and if any human makes the above changes to their diet, their situation will quickly and dramatically improve.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

Hi TheHumanTurd, sorry to hear about ur experiences, Do the energy drinks u drink contain Fructose Corn SYRUP and do u suffer from incomplete evacuation feelings? Thanks.

TheHumanTurd's picture

I'm a 17 year old guy living in Europe. I have one more year left in high school before I graduate and this fucking smell is killing me! During my first year at high school people said I smelled sweat but they never commented about a shit smell. My second year at high school is when it all started. At first I thought people said I smelled shit because of my sweat but I soon found out it was literally shit! People actually thought I smelled like shit... poop... crap... turds whatever you call it! This is fucking insane! I never want to be around people and I skip classes as often as I can. I really have no idea what caused this. I don't eat more fast food than a normal teenager and I eat just as healthy and unhealthy as any other kid in my age. I'm drinking A LOT of energy drinks though. I'm probably drinking it more than anyone else but I doubt that's the problem because I have been drinking energy drinks since I was 13 and the shit smell first appeared when I was about to turn 17. I can drink up to 4 - 5 cans of energydrinks a week but normally it's about 2 - 3 a week. I will try to cut down on the energydrinks and drink some more water.

I want to believe I'm just being paranoid but I fucking know I fucking smell. I don't have the guts to tell my fucking parents about it because I'm a freaking pussy with no balls. However... as soon as I move out I will see a doctor and I will fucking cure this disease. I haven't even got laid yet and I want to do it so badly but I can't get near girls. No girl has ever commented about me smelling like shit but I know they must think I farted or something. Every time I'm walking by someone at school I can see how they are about to vomit. They must think I have a big fucking ball of shit in my ass. Whenever I sit down on a chair I think the chair will disintegrate and everything I touch will fall in pieces. Even a fucking turd would say I smell awful. Even a really sour eggfart would run away as soon as I come close.

I wipe my ass in school sometimes and it's all clean but as soon as I smell the paper my nose vaporize and my hair is getting curly. I very very rarely smell my own body odor but every know and then I can... and I'm telling you, it fucking smells! I think it has something to do with how nervous you are and how depressed you are. I'm an extremely depressed kid. I have a body odor and my back is curved like a question mark. Some people would refer to that as a hunchback. I'm going bald and my ears are ugly and my nose is a big fat potato. My chin is shaped like an ass (maybe that's where my shitsmell comes from?) and besides that I also suffer from dandruff, VERY hairy pubic area, thin lower arms, funny shaped scalp, fat cheeks and a lot more! Besides this I guess I'm alright. I'm not attractive but I'm not totally unattractive. I have a muscular body which is quite sexy to be honest. Anyway... My dad is like a dictator. I have to walk home directly after school and I very rarely am allowed to sit on the computer. I have a bunch of close friends as well which I'm not allowed to see much. I am not allowed to go to parties. I have to study and prepare myself for collage according to my dad but he can fuck me in my fucking ear, I will NEVER go to collage. I'm a freaking psycho! I have so many problems with my body and my life that I'm going insane! I'm seriously thinking about gluing a headset onto my ears with some awful Techno music with the highest volume turned on, and the 'off' button is attached to a bomb.

My close friends and my family don't seem to notice my smell which is getting extremely frustrating. As I said... I think it has something to do how nervous you are when in public areas. If I'm at home I am very relaxed but in school I'm a nervous little fucking wreck. Even if I think I'm relaxed at school I'm not. When some guys in my class wants to sit next to me I just want to tell them to get the fuck off because I don't want to terrorize them with my fucking stench. And everything you read right now is 100% true. I do in fact have a hunchback, ugly big ears, potato nose, ass chin, fat cheeks, very hairy pubic region, awful smell, a funny shaped scalp and I'm also getting bald and all this at the age of 17! But seriously... I don't give a fuck. I don't mind living as an outcast as long as I have family and friends and something funny to do every day like watching movies. We're just spirits having a human experience and the life we live is all about gathering information about Earth and about humans. So I couldn't give two shits about society and other people. All of us will die, it's inevitably, and I have no fear of dying. It's just something you have to accept. I fucking accept it.

I wish this would just go away. Three years of my life have been ruined. I just want to be normal again and be able to see a movie or go to dinner or hang out at a bar. I can't stand being made fun of everyday of my life. Some days aren't as bad as others, but I know its always there. Some people are just more polite then others and just keep their mouth shut. Someone please find a solution!!!!

I should add that smoking the weed with your mouth will vastly diminish the smell around your ass.
I'm surprised you forgot to mention that Chief.
