    Well tell her to wear some deodorant if she stinks? That's if she actually does stink? Smell her?

    OH and tell her to shower more often if she does. Obviously not the nicest of things to say to a friend but if you're close then hopefully she'll understand.

    Unfortunately everyone has an odour, and many people think their own odour is quite nasty and very strong but others will not really notice it because to them its not strong. (not very good at explaining)basically each person smells their own scent because subconsiously they know they can smell it therefor its always there and extremely over powering, its also very difficult to get out of that mind track. I know someone who even uses a can of deodorant a week just on her bits (has caused her to get very severe cases of thrush quite regularly)

    Owwwww! And I'm not surprised that she gets thrush- does this not make her think she shouldn't use it down there?!

    Me, her aunt and several doctors have told her not too but she still doesn't listen... oh forgot to add the recuring cystitus she gets. There is only so many times one can tell another

    I actually had this for like 3 years when I was in Years 9-11 despite bathing twice a day. Started when I heared some girl on the bus behind me say "He stinks", it became an obsessional neurosis and was actually quite serious when it was in full swing. I even cut the carpet in my room up because I was convinced that stunk, making my room stink, making my clothes stink.

    It even carried over to sixthform though to a lesser extent and even now I sometimes think I stink. Despite still bathing twice a day.

    I also had the problem but now I don't actually notice it. which is good because I was so paranoid to the extent whilst I was at school everyone sort of found out that i was paranoid and started spraying anything at me (male deodorant, air freshners, and to the extent of getting adhesive air fresheners and sticking them to my back and bag.) I wasn't a very happy bunny with it
