PATM Smell - Has anyone found any relief from the smell?

Hi guys! I was just wondering if anyone who suffers from the strange body odor as well as the PATM reactions found anything that helps lesson the smell?? I'm suffering really badly with this strange sort of musky sweet burnt smell coming out of my body! Not from just the usual places like the armpits or feet etc but everywhere!! The more I seem to wash, the worse it gets!! I rarely use any soap, just mainly hot water because I have the problem with scented products, they just seem to smell soo bad on my skin! But the constant smell in my room in the morning and the office, car etc it's driving me mad and nothing seems to be working. I have seen a few people saying they have a similar problem and was hoping that someone has managed to keep it under control with something!?

Thanks!!

My homeopathic doctor has prescribed ketoconazole shampoo to be used all over my body. I use scrubbing mitts and apply it all over my body every couple of days. This has helped tremendously with PATM. You may also want to get on an elimination diet and anti fungal treatment to help your insides.

How long have you been using it? I’m sick of this musty smell. The fact I can smell it now is a plus though.

My PATM is related to a bowel obstruction of polyps blocking the IC valve and intestinal fistula.

Hoping that if I can get the e surgery to remove the diseased part of the colon the smell and dysbiosis will be heavily helped.

I have been diagnosed with SIBO and have bacterial overgrowth of h.pylori, ecoli, and very low to no beneficial bacteria ie. bifido, lacto, Most likely candida also.

The musty smell I believe is baseline for us. I also pick up other smells from my environment in my clothes. Could be related to sebum production and bacterial/fungal overgrowth eating said sebum.

Before my healing journey I had a very strong odor of ammonia (cat pee) in underarms and BO. Constant sweating also.

After about 3 years of working on diet exercise and stress my baseline is a musty sour smell occasional BO depending on what I eat.

Sometimes the smell actually comes from inside the nose and then you smell on your body and think it comes off your body.

This is so true. The smell is very prominent when a window is open. Musky sweet bitter. It fills a room. I also couldn’t smell it until recently but it permeates clothes after a short time especially outside.

I found that Hibiclens works really well, I use it daily as a body wash. You can buy it on Amazon for around $20.

and fungus grow into humidity, its a combination, thats why you need to dry every spot of humidity, make some
test to see if its gone by not using it for a day, because after 1-2 weeks it   should be ok!  candidose comme from what you put in your mouth:)

Patm is a smell. And more than likely its a side effect from tmau or something similar. You just cant smell yourself. I went my whole life not knowing I had a smell. Untill recently I have been able to smell myself since Ive been on a diet to reduce  inflammation.
The smell that is coming from you is ammonia. Our body is releasing ammonia through our pours since our liver cannot flush it all out. Hence why people react with the itching, sneezing, and coughing.
If its ammonia than it can be easily proved with a 20$ child chemistry set off Amazon.   It may be happening to some, but thats not the cause.
It also does not travel like any gas period. That is clear.

Any smell coming from you is in direct relation to your diet and also having regular bowel movements. You may want to start there if you want to get any relief from bad body odor.
