    Default bad body odour

    There are ones who has very bad body odour which are not able to be cured even they took thousands time of bath and spray very strong perfume? It's not caused by sweat or dirts in the body.

    1. What do we call this kind of problem?

    2. Is the above sentence OK

    1. I believe that "chronic body odour" is a medical term. There is usually an underlying cause (sometimes a fungal infection).

    2. I have made corrections (in red) to your original post.
