Smelly Sleep

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi,

Can anybody help me? I'm currently emitting a foul 'acrid' odour from my sweat - but only while sleeping. This is a very strange thing - as I do not have this problem when I sweat after sport or during the day. I thought it was to do with diet, but I do not eat anything with a strong smell and i am otherwise fit and healthy.

If anybody knows what this might be, or any advice of where to find out more please let me know.:confused:

Thanks.
JV

    Do you sweat every or most nights no matter of the tempature? Smell aside, night sweats could possibley be a side effect of a different disorder.

    hmm...

    have you tried having a bath before bedtime? Make sure you have cotton bed sheets

    put a fan on and leave a window open so you dont get too hot and sweat?

    thanks for your response. i sweat most nights - and have had the problem both winter and summer. The smell only really comes form my head - so i need to change pillow case every couple of days.

    thats so odd, is it from any particular part of your head?

    i'd go to the doctors if i were you...doesnt sound normal
