Our expert says:
Bad smelling flatulence can be caused by a variety of factors such as the types of foods you eat (raw onions, garlic, cabbage, legumes, etc) and conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), food allergies (e.g. gluten intolerance), enzyme deficiencies, parasitic infestations, etc. If this condition causes embarrassment, it may be a good idea to have a medical checkup so that the dr can determine if there is an underlying physical cause. If you are given a clean bill of health you will have to keep a good diary and note down what you eat and at what times you produce unpleasant flatulence. This should give you an idea as to which foods to avoid.
