Hello, Sorry about this issue. If he has gas emmision with smell, you could restrict meat and give some oral enzyme preparation once after meals. Partial indigestion could be cause for smell.

Some antibiotics cause diarrhea, which will stop after drug course is over.

Please also use some deodorant after bath and before school time.

Thanks for your response, however I still have more questions? So what to we do about the partial indigestion besides what you have advised related to food. What is a oral enzyme ? Is that a probiotic.? Any specific brand I should buy? What about the hyperdrosis of his buttocks. What do we do about that, because the meds prescribed ain't working.
