Question: skin rash with odor
|jggraham - Sun Apr 24, 2005 10:20 pm||
I have had a skin rash for about 2 years it started on my legs and has gone to my back and stomach. The doctor thought it was an allergy to my laundry soap but we went to a hypoallergenic soap and I still have it and I seem to have an odor on my body that I cant seem to get rid of I take 2 baths a day and I still feel like I smell. Is there a parasite or something that this could be. Please help.

Fungal infections usually present with an unusual odor. However, have any diagnostic studies, biopsy etc. been completed to identify the actual cause? If not I would suggest a re-evaluation by your physician or a referral from him/her to a dermatologist to identify the causative factor.
