Hello from JA
First of all
Have you seen your doctor and been checked for diabetes, thyroid problems, kidney problems and liver problems?

Are you obese?

No

That is your first step.
Body odor can be a reflection of diabetes, thyroid problems, liver or kidney problems, as well as bowel or bladder problems.

It can also be a function of the type of bacteria that resides on your skin. I would stop all the products, wash with pure soap, and do a dry brush massage before each shower, using a soft bristle natural brush over the whole body, which removes dead skin, which is what bacteria feeds on.

But also see your doctor asap.
