Dear Flower
It may be a good idea to have a medical and a dental checkup just to make sure that you do not have an underlying condition such as infected teeth, tonsils or nasal infections or fat malabsorption that could be causing the bad odour. I don't know if you eat a lot of foods that contain sulphur compounds such as raw onions, garlic and eggs. These sulphur compounds can be excreted in sweat and cause an unpleasant smell. Also consider seeing a Dermatologist if you do sweat excessively.
Best regards
