Big problem with body odor!

Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your odor issues.  If you no longer have significant sweating taking place you may be suffering from another process, such as hidradenitis supporativa.  I would recommend talking to your primary care doctor about what may be taking place, they can then refer you to the appropriate specialist.  Hope this helps.
