Has anyone experienced a strong body odor along with IBS? I developed IBS-D at age 18, which was accompanied by body odor. This not FBO or a "fish odor," it is a normal odor comming from the underarms, only it is very strong and almost always present, sometimes arising only minutes out of the shower. The severity of the two conditions seem to coencide, such that when my IBS is worse, so is the odor, and vice versa.The things that I have found that help are: eliminating foods that worsen my IBS (fructose, lactose, fired foods), taking probiotics, and eating a substantial amount of fiber. I was also prescribed Welchol, a cholestrol medication that removes bile from the digestive tract. It works well for the IBS symptoms, but it's not something I've seen elsewhere on this site. To help with the odor, my doctor perscribed topical clindamycin, an antibiotic used for acne. These things all help, but nothing has removed either condition completely.I am curious if anyone else has experienced these two conditions together.
