But do you have body odor? maybe not.
First i am a EMT and have smelled many types of medical body odors. from drunks to diabetes.
You may not have a body odor problem. The complainer may have a medical condition that causes them to perceive odors strangely.
Or something they eat, drink, or medication they are taking may be mixing with your normal body odor making them believe you have a offensive body
Also i have had cases where people with mental health problems that ether hallucinated strange odors. or because of there disorder there brain would
completely misinterpret odors.
Medication you are taking can also cause body odors. statin drugs for high cholesterol are known for this.
and there are other medications that will cause odors.
I had the same thing happen to me. one company i worked for we rode a van into the work site, about a 30 min drive.
Someone complained to the boss that I had a strong body odor. Now this was in a van full of construction workers.
Yes there were strong body odors of alcohol sweat that i smelled. As some of the crew drank heavy after work.
and the next morning you could smell the strong alcohol sweat.
And i could not have been me because i did not drink.
The boss checked with a couple other members of the crew and they confirmed what i said..
After long hours on hot days working as a EMT i found that Chlorophyll tablets that you can buy at any drug store is the only thing that will stop
Chlorophyll will treat internal and external body odors.
Chlorophyll tablets are used by people with Ostomy bags and people that are urinary incontinent to hide the odors from those conditions.
Perfumes, deodorants, and some antiperspirants, can cause complaints from people that have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities Syndrome.(MCS)
The person that complained about you may have MCS and think its body odor and not know they have the disorder.
