    Rotten tooth maybe. Gum disease. Infection. Chronic halitosis. There's a few reasons it could be, and they're not necessarily related to a person's hygiene (though it could be, or perhaps they just have a poor brushing technique or don't use a tongue scraper when they should).

    Well, if you get a sinus infection, as it clears it typically drains through your cheeks. If you have a problem with your teeth to begin with, it can cause an infection. That's just one example of a multitude of possibilities.

    I don't know what would be comorbid with bad teeth, other than possible indications of substance abuse or an eating disorder. Even past use can leave permanent, long-term damage. @Suz would be best at fielding medical questions of that nature.

    Maybe...also they just ate something. That something might not be agreeing with their system.
    I had a bf that ate tons of garlic, and the slightest bit of sweat was...ew.
    I knew another guy who sweated so much, he was constantly layered with ..like..salt. I couldn't stand touching him. But for him I think it was due to drugs.
    Which brings to mind medications can also cause some funky smells too.


    As for smelling sickness, my cat normally has a sweet smeel to her, i love it. But I know when she's getting sick because she starts to smell musty. This means she's holding fluid in her lungs again. The musty smell might be from her not feeling well and so hiding in an area that also happens to be musty. (Which i'm sure isnt good for her lungs.)

    And R sometimes gets a ...sour milk...smell. Not his mouth, his body. I don't know why it happens...yet. The first time it happened, it was so bad for a few weeks that i made him go see a dr...who gave me funny looks as I tried to describe it. *sigh*

    Eating bad eggs can give you sulfur burps. Those are the worst. If they're really bad, they give you gas, too.

    Men have a worse sense of smell than women. This is a good thing.

    Do you know what google is? Or are you just a fucking moron playing it safe? I'm sorry, maybe you were just bored.

    But the really specific question I have at the moment is, have you ever had the experience of like catching a whiff of someone's breath and you can like smell down the back of their throat, like they have really bad tonsil bits or something? The other day I was in a room full of people and occasionally I'd catch this whiff of putrification. What is that?
    I notice smells like that and it is very distracting to me.

    A relative has gum disease. Despite all her attentions, water pick, floss, toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, etc her breath is always bad.

    Another relative had a very clean, tidy house that always had a strange almost mildewy smell. Her breath had the same smell. Their clothes had a hint of the same smell when you hugged them. They would make homemade candy at Christmas and bring it to us and I could taste the funky house smell in the candy. She was always meticulously groomed and her house was immaculately clean, but her beautiful home had that odd smell. She died of cancer about 10 years ago. Her husband still lives in the same house, but it no longer has that strange smell. It was like the smell was Her.

    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation

    Was it you that stated they have asperger's syndrome? I'm genuinely curious.

    I think a lot of really bad breath is caused by tonsil stones aka tonsilloliths when people have brushed their teeth properly, don't have anything like gum disease, and haven't eaten anything that would give them bad breath. Is that what you meant by tonsil bits?

    My sense of touch is more pervasive and annoying. I always feel every little itch, pain, irritation, on my skin. Cold weather is the worst... Smells are blocked out to me unless it's really strong and someone points it out to me. I might as well not have a sense of smell.

    All my favorite smells are also unfortunately classifiable as inhalants, though I don't abuse them like so.



    Though there was that scent that used to permeate the basement, to which I took a liking. It's gone now.

    The outdoor scents that come with change of season and temperature never completely leave.

    His question seems far too specific to be answered by a Google search.

    i like to ignore odors because i'm dead inside? i really just kind of ignore them... the world of smell, it's in another universe, the one where dogs interpret reality (and that isn't meant as an insult, but as admiration of dogs because of their sense of reality and how they know things i don't know... i want in their brains)

    anyway, it's more than ignoring but simply rarely noticing... unless there's an anomaly... then i tend to notice, unless i'm tired, which i often am and so there isn't anything to spare for this sense. it's probably sad.
