In most cases, bad body odor is due to excessive sweating and the growth of bacteria. A number of steps can be taken to minimise this. You should consult a dermatologist for this so that appropriate steps can be taken and prescription drugs prescribed. You should try using deodarants and anti-prespirants. You can look up this site for more info on the steps that yu should take: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sweating-and-body-odor/DS00305/DSECTION=7
Bad mouth smell is called Halitosis. In most cases this is due to bad oral hygeine. You should consult a dentist for this. You should also try Hexidine moth wash, this will help in removing the odor. You can look up here:
Diet is also important for body odour. You can look up this site for some info on this: http://www.newstarget.com/004417.html For fecal body odour, you can try Vit. K injections. These are prescription drugs. Yu can look up here for a discussion on this: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=186462
You should also consider the possibility that what you are having is a monosymptomatic delusion of unpleasant body odour. Such fears of having unpleasant body odours are called Bromhidrosiphobia. This is a psychological problem, and I would lke to stress that it does not mean that the person who is having it is 'just imagining it'. This is an actual response of the olfactory system of the body to some stress or other psychological trauma to which the body responds in an atypical way, so that the brain actually experiences this unpleasant odour. In this case, a psychiatrist consultation would be necessary.

I am sorry to hear of your difficulties, and will try to help.
What do people say the odor smells like? You have said "waste" but can you specify? Rotten fish? Rotten garbage?
Is this smell constant, or does it get worse or better with certain foods/times of day or activities?
Do you have your tonsils?
How is your general health? Aside from this, and high blood pressure, are you healthy? No current illnesses?
Thank you for providing this information,
Thanks for answering. A few more questions. How are your bowel movements? Normal for you? (and please tell me what that is) IF your bowel patterns did change, did it happen around the same time the bad breath started? Any abdominal surgery?
I dont have a concrete answer for you but I have some ideas. I asked about bowel movements and bowel habbits because an impaction of the bowels can result in some foul smelling breath.
You have tonsils. On occassion, tonsiliths (tonsil stones) can cause some nasty breath odor. IF you have them, and they are visible, you will see them as white "gunk" on your tonsils, in the crypts/holes in the tonsil. You can also have them where they can NOT be seen. They are formed from lymph fluids and foods that can be trapped in the tonsils, and for some people they can be uncomfortable. Other than causing bad breath, they have no ill effects on health. If you crush a tonsilith, the odor is concentrated putrid.
You have been to the ENT, gotten a clean bill of health. That does not mean something wasnt missed. Sinusistis can cause bad breath, as can throat infections. I would choose a second opinion from a different ENT, one NOT in the first ones practice.
I include a link to halitosis (its not one you have seen here) http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003058.htm
I also include a link on tonsiliths:
I hope that helps...
