I don't think it is silly at all. I have found many things have changed since I started therapy. I found some informative information in this thread just as I have in many others. No silliness here, not yet anyway! There's still time though.

Gross RE: This may be an odd question, but...
Grouphug3 I guess as long as there is real, helpful info along with the silliness, then its warranted. We want the info, but we gotta have fun getting it, and I find this forum both helpful as well as fun. Just please don't dare to challenge me about who can get silly, as I am the champ in that department, and you will probably live to rue the moment you brought that subject up lots-o-coffee

Cheers

Doesn't untreated apnea often cause night sweats? Doesn't a higher level of sweat tend to add to the smell?

To paraphrase a portion of my explanation, the more you sweat, the greater the chance that you are providing a growth medium for smelly stuff.

I gotta ask? As all the people that know me are very surprised when I tell them I do nothing (yellow Dial bar soap) and even if I don't shower for 1-3 days, honestly no one (I have asked) notices any body odor - why? Just lucky?

I seem to be sweating more UNDER therapy than I was BEFORE therapy. Not excessively, but more.

A bit of a combination of things, from your skin chemistry to how much and how you sweat.

I never use deodorants, use a non-soap soap (can't stand that sticky filmy feeling from normal soaps) and that is all - I eat garlic, everything, no problems, no smells. My Better Two Thirds only has to look at a garlic and she reeks of it. Go fig - hard for her with her love of the stuff and her Italian heritage. So, body chemistry, or more correctly skin chemistry and sweat patterns have a lot to do with it. There are non smelly bacteria on your skin, too, and they can help in all this.

You see that Peter_C even your skin bacteria is not working as it should. Non smelly skin bacteria, it should be a crime! Sounds like they are goofing off on the job.
