Possible skin disorder or autoimmune disorder


Q: Hi, I am experiencing a strong pugnent body odor. I have also noticed what appears to be excess dirt in my bath water regardless of how many bathes I take per day... the only thing that will change is perhaps the water wont look as dark. The substance coming off of my skin is waxy like. I was also diagnosed with Diabetes and mixed connective tissue disorder associated with lupus. I am also experiencing hot flashes excessively. Most often I dont feel well. I have tried every deodorant sold on the shelves and yet I still smell musty. I bathe twice a day minimum and will stink by the 10th hour. i have also tried every soap sold. The only two things that seem to help the body odor is acne wash and hibiclens. I can also taste the bad odor it appears sometimes. Please help. Thank you.
