Hi. Greetings. Body odor usually starts due to action of micro organisms in the folds of skin on the sweat and other oily and eccrine/ exocrine gland secretions. So you probably have a sub clinical infection with organisms which have happily colonised in your body and folds - and this requires treatment . Foods too can effect sweat odor to some extent. Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Warm wishes.
