Weird Smelly Odor? Eczema

My name is Daniel, and i seem to have an issue regarding my smell. I have Eczema, and am constantly worried about this odd "smelly feet" smell. I cannot find out what the origin of the smell actually is, and my friends are not a help whatsoever.

Things I have tried:
-Anti-Perspirent Deodorant on feet and armpits,
-Extra Lotion on whole body
-Shoes in the wash, clean shoes etc.
-Changing of socks

I have never heard of eczema causing a bad smell, so I would love to know if anyone has an answer for how to help you because I know someone very close to me with eczema and they too have a constant moldy-like smell. It's very faint but I've always wondered what it was and it is very interesting to me that you say you experience the same thing. And informative. We've tried everything too and I don't know how to help her. Do other people smell it? Because I am the only one that can smell it on this (young) person. Maybe your nose is just overly sensitive to it and no one else can smell it like you do. I hope someone can help you. I wish you luck!

I am not the only one to smell it. Sometimes during classes my classmates get a really bad whiff of it then i just have to say I farted. It is really degrading but I seriously cannot figure out the origin to this.

Im guessing unless in the next 3 days I get a good answer that solves the problem, I will have to talk to my parents about seeing an actual dermatologist. If I end up doing that I will report here to help other Eczema patients with the same problem

Yeah that would be great if you could let us know. Good idea to see a doctor! Good luck!

It's not been stated the exact cause of eczema but it's thought to be linked to an overactive retort by the body's immune system to an irritant. Since many people with eczema also undergo from allergies, your doctor may execute allergy tests to resolve possible irritants or triggers.

I having Atopic eczema and i also having odd "smell" but it does not smell like "smelly feet" smell. Although i cant smell it due to i have sensitive nose , my family members complain that the smell is very strong . I not sure that is the Aqua cream that i apply on my body causing the smell or my sweat mix with the cream on my body that causing the smell . Anyone found the solution for this ?
