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.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
