I have been suffering from fecal odor for 5 years now. It started in 6th grade but I didn't think of it. I always thought people were making it up, but its not until this year that I actually smelled my self and smelled what others have been smelling for years. I can't f***ing take it anymore. What bothers me the most is that there's nothing I can do about it. I wish it was regular sweaty bo, then I can just hop in the shower and it'll be gone, but it's much more f***ing complicated than that. It is RUNNING my f***ING life. I never want to go out, I skip classes so don't have to deal with the cruel comments, my grades are going down because the teachers can smell me too and I don't come in for help. If I have a bad education, then my future is f***ed. I've tried showering with lemon juice and baking soda, this medicine to make you poop more, and diet. What else am I the f*** to do? My odor changes based on what types of food I eat...and when I haven't eaten anything yet it smells like feces. The doctors are puzzled and don't think there's a cure. My parents think I'm crazy and won't buy me medicine that I think might cure it. I also have a pea sized lump in my anal area, but it comes and goes. What is it? What is my problem? I don't cen know where the odor comes from. It seems like from my anus, but when I wipe or stick my hand in there and take it sniff, it smells like nothing. But when I smell my skin to see if its from my pores, I smell the lotion I'm wearing. Maybe that's because I can't smell it at that time. Does anyone else have the same story as me? Please help me.
