When you sweat profusely the bacteria in your body increase in their number and causes you to stink. Bromhidrosis or body odour is not caused by sweat but by what is contained in it. For example, if you are taking any strong medication like insulin your sweat may contain the smell of acetone.
Gender, genetics, health and one’s diet (including occasional constipation and micronutrient deficiencies) also are reasons for body odour. Any medical condition you may have like fungal infections or liver diseases, menopause, increased secretion of hormones you may have an unpleasant odour. Those who smoke, drink or use tobacco have a strong smell of these in their perspiration. Other than these, toxins in the body, zinc deficiency and teeth cavities and poor hygiene are also seen to cause body odour.
