Persistent Fecal Body Odor from IBS
#1
Hi there,

I am hoping that some of you can help me. I have had IBS with diarrhea for 7 years. I have most aspects of the condition under control. I eat a very healthy diet now, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep. To treat the symptoms, I use psyllium fiber and antispasmodics.

The problem that I cannot seem to get control over is the body odor. I carry a persistent fecal smell that makes interpersonal interaction very difficult.

I only have one friend (who can't smell well) and my family is a bit distant so I feel isolated. People I work with try to be polite but they have slipped up coming into meeting rooms and commenting on the odor so I know it is there. I don't smell it a lot of the time.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am sorry your situation is so unpleasant. Not from personal experience, but have you tried wearing a dressing containing activated charcoal. They use the stuff all the time to absorb odors. It might be worth trying.

Thank you. I will look into that.

Another option is to try altering your foods to include those with more digestive bacteria. Some probiotic capsules, arabic or asian pickles and sauerkraut might change your gut flora and reduce the odor. Cheese might help if you can stomach it. If you don't get entire success with this, you should look into caproyl. It is an antifungal that can reduce the amount of yeast growing in your intestines in case they are causing the odor. People talk about it as "colon cleansing" but I just see it as a way to alter the gut flora.

Just make sure to track your diet in case you end up with problems. Support from your doctor might also be a good idea.

Wow, that is something I have never heard about. Thank you.

I am glad you didn't call it colon cleansing. You would have lost me there. The internet is crawling with people selling colon cleansing and detox packages. I don't know what the fascination is that people have with this.

Yeah, it is very strange fascination. Good luck with these.
