Warning signs: The scent on your skin may be signalling a serious health condition

Body odour

While some body odour is normal, a particularly strong smell could be a sign of skin disease, Doctor Jennifer Stagg.

She continued: “Skin infections can present with a putrid odour from the by-products of bacterial growth. 

“Gangrene, which is dying tissue, has one of the most offensive odours and smells like rotting meat.” 

Internal health issues may result in unpleasant body odours, as well, such as liver and kidney disease and hyperthyroidism, which can lead to excessive sweat and increased BO.

Dr Stagg recommends talking with your doctor if you notice a strong smell from your skin.
