Body odor as we may know is the perceived unpleasant smell our bodies can give off when bacteria that live on the skin break down sweat into acids. Some say it is the smell of bacteria growing on the body, but it is actually the result of bacteria breaking down protein into certain acids.
Body Odor is caused by the combination of sweat and bacteria normally found on the skin. It can also have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include poor hygiene, hot and humid weather, recent exercise or eating certain foods such as onions and garlic.
A Nairaland user who asked for a way he can tell his friend that she has strong body odor got so amazing response from users on the platform. According to him,
I met a girl recently, though the state in which I met her wasn’t pleasing at all.
I was passing by with friends, when we saw a girl sitting alone crying profusely.
I had to tell others to leave us.
that was the first time I saw Premium tears, as in it was pouring like spring from her eyes, she finally told me the challenges she is going through.
as a young man, I can’t start making promises, I had to encouraged her to fix her pieces and not with tears.
fast forward, we starts meeting at same spot, just to always check on her and her progress.
I don’t have any intention towards her, just want to see her always happy.
but I’m having issues that is making me unconformable around her.
Her body odor is so strong, that I’m always tempted to tell her.
though our friendship is still weak, cus it not up to a month we met.
I don’t know if it’s right time or right, if I open up to her?
How can I tell her without making her feel embarrassing?
and some self medication to help out.

Buy her good exfoliating soap, deodorants and perfume, when those ones you bought finishes, she will be used to them and start buying them herself and no one will notice it anymore.

If her body odor disturbs you then stop going to her but if you are enjoying her body odor then you can continue going to her
If you will tell her, she will look embarrasse and she might insort you in which you can lost your temper that can result fighting, you might give her a heavy dirty slap, she will fall down and die
