Doctor Surenyan explained the occurrence of an unpleasant smell of sweat
Georgy Surenyan, an expert in lifestyle modification and non-drug recovery, explained the occurrence of an unpleasant smell of sweat. According to him, among the reasons may be nutrition, genetics and health conditions, writes "Sport-Express".
“The reason for this can be various factors such as genetics, diet, hygiene and health conditions. Sweat itself is odorless - it's the bacteria on our skin that breaks it down and creates an unpleasant smell," he said.
Bad smelling sweat can be caused by stress, hormonal changes, infections, and certain medications. The smell can also indicate health problems, such as diabetes, thyroid, kidney, and liver problems.
If the odor is unusually strong, the doctor advises visiting a dermatologist, endocrinologist, or therapist. You should also follow the rules of hygiene, take a shower every day and use antiperspirants, Surenyan added.
