Customer Question

I had something with strong garlic for lunch one day....I smell like garlic the next morning, long after it has digested. My pores seem to exude the smell. Is that normal? What does that mean?

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

It's normal to have smell for few days after eating garlic.

Sometimes when somebody is using such garlic like foods then electrolytes have imbalanced and sweat glands release this kind of odor you are experiencing.I will advise some self care measures like

Drink too enough water, don't use spicy foods.

Avoid junk food and do regular exercise.

Also take appropriate sleep.

Fresh orange juice can help you because it has antioxidant effects.

Try honey and some added lemon in warm water every morning before your breakfast for few days.

Eat a bland diet.

You feel better in next few days.
