Body odor is a byproduct of the metabolic process of various bacteria, primarily corynebacteria and micrococci, which break down organic substances found on the skin, in sweat or on clothing. These bacteria flourish in moist warm, moist areas of the skin, like the arm pits and feet, where moisture cannot readily evaporate.
Restoring the natural balance of bacteria by destroying the excess unwanted, odor-causing bacteria on the skin and in the system results in elimination of the odor. Poor hygiene, nervousness, excessive sweating, anxiety, stress, detoxification, poor diet and cigarette and alcohol use can also contribute to body odor.
I've read that eating too much foods high in choline and lecithin (choline can come from lecithin) can cause a fishy body odor. Foods high on these include most high protein foods like meat, eggs, and soy.
Do some research on the foods high on choline and lecithin and change her diet to avoid those foods. Also spicy foods, garlic, and onion can also cause body odor.
Having a damaged colon might also be a cause and is caused by eating the wrong combinations of food. Do a search on "trophology" to learn which foods to avoid eating together.
Then there can also be diseases of organs that detoxify the body like the liver and kidneys which can cause them to not work properly and have the toxins contaminate one's body which can cause body odor.
There are genetic diseases that can make people have body odor. One of these obscure diseases include trimethyaminuria which is unheard by many doctors. This disease causes a fishy body odor even if a person has a very good hygiene habits.
Conditions that can result in body odor include kidney disease, liver disease and fungal infections. Body odor can also occur in adolescence due to the rapid changes in hormone levels and sweat gland growth.
>>> Sudah di mandiin 3x sehari tapi tidak pengaruh, dipakain bedak, sabun antiseptic segala tetap tidak ngaruh malah bau nya makin bercampur aduk.
Are you using any sulphur-based soap? They can make your entire body smell bad, even if it's just for your face
>>>Mohon solusi bagaimana pencegahannya
Beneficial Dietary Supplements
Chlorophyll is an effective and great internal deodorant and you can buy it in supplement form from most health food stores and even some pharmacies.
Vitamin B helps remove waste.
Zinc helps balance the body's metabolism and reduces the cause of bad body odor.
Magnesium enhances the effectiveness of vitamin B and zinc.
Thyme and Lavender Oils kill bacteria.
Sage, when taken in tea form, reduces sweat gland activity.

She may be going through a hormonal change in life. A check-up by an endocrinology specialist doctor may help determine if it is an unbalance in male/female hormones. Yes men have female hormones & women have male hormones. Also, try eating parsley on a regular basis
If you have a natural food store nearby, go and look into the line or products called "Burt's Bees" (www.burtsbees.com).
Change underwear every day and always wear clean clothing. Wear clothing that is loose fitting and made of natural fabrics like cotton, silk, linen and wool.
I recommend you take your daughter to see a doctor and change her diet. If the doctor is useless or misdiagnoses your daughter then get the second opinion of a more knowledgeable doctor. I hate to say this, but there are also incompetent "professionals" out there who will make mistakes because of their lack of ability, so getting second opinions is a must for any disease that don't go away.
Good luck Lisa,
