Smells



Recommended Posts

I’m a month post op and I noticed that as my body is constantly in ketosis, I feel like I always smell. Do any of you have any experience of smelly crotches and breathe?

Any tips to alleviate the smelliness?

There was a recent thread about bad breath. One suggestion was to chew parsley. On the smelly crotch, there's a real thing called "keto crotch ". You can Google it. Not sure there is a cure.

Congrats 💜 you're a fat burn machine 💃

I scrub those areas (underarms and V area) with soap and a small brush (like a mani pedi or body brush) to really get rid of the bacteria accumulated on the surface. Then perhaps wipes throughout the day.

Good luck 🌈

For me it's my armpits, but your suggestion has merit, I think I'll try and see if it makes a difference. Thanks Green Tealael!

Try lemon to clean the armpit while taking a shower or bath. hair under the armpit also traps bacteria.

Thank you everyone for this thread! I’m at 25lbs lost, 3 weeks post op. I’m constantly brushing my teeth, extra shower a day. I’m glad to know I’m not alone. Thanks for the tips.
