Ladies if you ever wondered what that hot mess fish odor from down south was, there may be more to it than just needing a good vinegar wash.
A woman who spent four decades trying to figure out why her H.B.O smelled like Fish Body Odor recently got an explanation by Australian doctors. The woman has been diagnosed with an incurable genetic condition called trimethylaminuria, or fish malodor syndrome, which affects the smell of sweat, breath and urine.
“The characteristic body odor resembling rotting fish can be intermittent, variable and influenced by diet, hormones and medications,” her doctors said in the Medical Journal of Australia.
This so-called disease has had a negative physiological impact on this woman’s life especially since previous doctor visits resulted in her being told she had poor hygiene.
Now this doesn’t give some of you an excuse to be smelling like the hottest mess in public. Trimethylaminuria is a rare disease. Most of you just need a good vinegar washing.
