Strange Bodily Odours on pre-adolescent

My son has recently developed a strange sour smell, almost garlic like. He does not seem to be ill, but the smell is worrying me.

Dear Ady
It could be that his sweat is smelling different because of hormonal changes. Sometimes low or high blood sugar or kidney problems can cause a funny smell - you can let your doctor exclude this with a urine test.
