The last week or so I really wiff and I have tried everything. I am not sweating more, just smell blush I don't use perfumed shower gels (i don't think anway...), I scrub well & have tried varying amount of deodorant. The worst is when I get up in the morning. I don't know if it's hormones from just having had a baby, or breastfeeding? Whatever it is, how can I help it? blush Thanks.

What do you smell like? certain medical conditions can cause smells. Which parts of you are you getting a smell from?

O, armpits. Just... like kebab, really urgh.

I'm thinking bromhidrosis?

Check under the pillows? Long story but I found a kebab in bed once.

I sweat a LOT and I swear by this

If you are worried then get checked out.

Congrats on new baby

No kebab in the bed! Says caused by poor hygiene ( that b word) but I shower every am & bath pm. I shave 'em.

ok, thanks, i'll give it a whirl! Not worried as such, just want rid of it

hecate Fri 03-Oct-08 18:19:00

poor hygiene? no it's not

This happened to me blush I use perspirex now it really good but can irritate. I put it down to hormone change after DS.
Good luck, sweet smelling!!

yeh - its well known that you sweat more after having a baby - all that extra fluid you retain during pregnancy has to be lost somehow

i was the same, and am now as sweet as roses (sometimes)
