Treatment For Bromhidrosis Or Body Odor?
Excuse me doctor, I want to ask, I experienced body odor that I could not get rid of even though I had showered and had used deodorant which was quite expensive and considered effective. When I try to wash my hands with scented soap, my hands become like the smell of rubbish as well as my hair that I try to use scented shampoo. I still get body odor even though I don’t sweat. My body odor can roughly be smelled with a radius of 8 meters and can penetrate walls. I use anti-septic soap. People around me smell me by covering their noses with their hands or wearing masks. I am confused. I have not bathed in the past few days. I have also showered without using soap a few months ago. Even so, I now take a shower and use soap, but the smell does not disappear. What happened exactly,?

Body odor or bromhidrosis, is the result of the abuse of keratin by bacteria and sweat glands in the body. so that bacteria on the skin have a role in breaking down proteins and produce strong odors from the surface of the human body. Individuals who are at risk of having body odor complaints are:
1. Excessive sweating and less clean skin
2. male sex, stronger body odor
3. Certain food habits, such as spicy foods, garlic, brambang, or broccoli
4. patients with certain diseases, such as kidney failure patients, liver patients, or diabetes, thyroid disorders
5. obsitas or overweight
6. the habit of consuming drugs or smokers
7. skin infections
9. infection of the female or reproductive area
11. puberty, menstruation or hormonal influences
If any of the above you find yourself or have ever done, the risk of body odor will increase.
In addition, if indeed the body odor that you complain about can be smelled 8 meters from you, then this is an unpleasant condition for you, those around you and also your work or activities. Self-confidence can decrease and affect relationships with people around you.
Because body odor is more influenced by bacterial decomposition results by bacteria, then the habit of not bathing, or not using soap should have been avoided. Keep your body clean, especially before menstruation in women and clean your body folds from dirt or clogs. If necessary, you can ask the professional at the beauty clinic to help cleanse your body from dirt or clogs, especially in the folds of your body. The presence of dirt still attached to your body may be a point of growth of germs and a point of increasing unpleasant odors.
In addition to maintaining the cleanliness of your skin, hair, and body folds, you also need to maintain the cleanliness of your environment, your clothes, your socks, and where you sleep. All things related to and contact with your body or skin must get good attention. Next rub the body or cleanse the body of dead skin and dirt you can do regularly.
Some other efforts can also be made to help prevent unpleasant bodily bodies, such as:
1. multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit
2. multiply the consumption of water
3. avoid stress
4. avoid sleeping late
5. immediately clean or shower if your body is hot
6. control the underlying disease if any
7. regular exercise
8. keep the oral cavity clean
9. use shampoo, soap, or deodorizer properly and fairly and do not switch brands to prevent the risk of skin complaints, use products that are suitable for you
However, if all the efforts you make do not provide optimal benefits in the next few weeks, then you should consult directly with your dermatologist. The doctor will conduct an evaluation and direct examination related to your complaint. Investigations will be planned to ensure the presence of the underlying disease. If no underlying disease is found, the doctor can recommend good personal hygiene care for you. thus, over time, your eating patterns are healthy, your activity patterns are healthy and your body odor does not interfere.
