body odour after quit smoking

Hi, I have a weird issue. I gave up smoking 4 months ago and when I perspire I have an unpleasant body odour. Is this here to stay?

Dear Bevie
It is unlikely to be due to stopping smoking. Perspiration that smells bad are often due to overgrowth of bacteria on the skin. Try bathing with antiseptic soap. using an antiperspirant rather than deoderant, avoid spicy and strong smelling foods like onion and garlic.
