Body odor can be defined by your hygiene practices and your genetics, but your diet and certain foods play a key role in how you smell.
Body odor is also caused by a mix of bacteria and sweat on your skin. Your body odor can change due to hormones, the food you eat, infection, medications or underlying conditions like diabetes. Prescription-strength antiperspirants or medications may help.
