Hard to understand the code you write in, Shanaze. O hope this isn't part of the problem yopu've had with your doctors. Apparently you have a problem ( you haven't said what ) which doctors have looked at and cant find anything wrong, and have referred you to a psychologist. That might indeed be useful.
You mention a foul smell from your mouth and perhaps also body - obviously YOU notice this smell - do other people specifically say that they notice it ? Or is it just a theory you have that there is a stink other people notice which keeps them away from you ?
Yes, there is a condition called Bromidrosis, usually related to smelly sweat, and a range of treatments for that. Doctors whom laugh when you ask about that are fools who don't know enough, and most dangerously, don't know that there are many very real and important things they dont know. Often a Dermatologist ( skin specialist ) can help, as their expertise includes sweat problems.
There are also conditions in which a person becomes convinced that they have a foul smell when actually they don't, and though they themselves are convinced of this, nobody else notices it or believe in it. In this case, CBT style counselling can help, and some meds also used for psychotic illnesses can also help one to stop being so convinced of it, and more relaxed in realting to other people.

Ek is nie seker hoekom ''n sielkundige sou kon help nie, tensy die dokters niks geruik het nie en daarom gedink het jou probleem is sielkundig van aard. Was jy al by ''n internis?
