Q: Body Odor. My husband says I have a body odor that smells like moth balls. I floss and brush daily and have no dental infections. I shower and use deoderant daily also. I have tried using mouthwash and stopped using perfumes but to no avail. Is it possible that this is a result of medications? I take Centrum Silver and a potassium tablet but drink a LOT of water every day. Can you give me any idea of what may be causing this? It's not my clothes or shoes or feet or shampoo or soap. My next stop is my physician but I don't want him to think I'm a hypochondriac. -- Pattie Whiz. Reply. 20/08/08
