Looking for hygienist

My officemate is experiencing hygiene problem which we (officemates) know that might be some cause we dont understand. Our officemate is sure clean, scrubbing at bath, putting on roll-on, but there's this stingy smell we kept on noticing that we dont understand the smell. Can you recommend nay hygienist to help her solve her "hygiene" problem?

    Excessive sweating? Body Odor? Why not bring your friend to a Dermatologist?

    Hello. I'm an orthodontist (a dentist). Perhaps it would be better if you would ask some of the physicians here at Pex for recommendations on dermatologists. Perhaps they would recommend other specialists, please follow their advise.

    There's also a thread on dermatologists in the Style and Fashion section of Pex. Please read it.

    In the world of dentistry, the term "hygienist" refers to an assistant to a dentist whose main job is to clean teeth by oral prophylaxis. I don't think there's such a thing as a medical hygienist.
  • same thing we experienced with our classmate last year.. mukha naman naliligo sya.. its just this sour smell that we feel has stuck to her skin.. we felt really bad for her but what can we do?..
  • Thanks for the help. We'll be considering all your suggestions. We hope more will contribute to this.

    Try advising your friend to consult a physician, an internist (specialist in Internal Medicine), as much as possible. There could be more than 2 dozen causes of body odor which are medical in nature.

    Some conditions causing body odor despite adequate hygiene:
    Gastrointestinal disorders
    Diabetes
    Diabetic ketoacidosis
    Urinary tract infection
    Athlete's foot - causes foot odor.
    Scurvy
    Typhoid fever
    Fish odor syndrome - a very rare metabolic disease

  • More replies would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  • we also noticed this dark build up of dirt-like patches on her skin.. could that be part of where the odor is coming from?
