Body odor in young boys
My 9 year old boy has a very pugent body odor, so strong that his coat actually smells, he does not sweat alot and we have been using antibacterial soap showering daily, sometimes twice a day, his doctor told us to try to change his ph by giving him yogurts but it is not working, any advice?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. This question has been addressed previously in general terms. Please discuss any specifics with your son's physician.
