Started smelling last month

Thanks for the information

Foul smelling stools can be a symptom of intestinal infection and that's need to be ruled out. You need to have a stool analysis for any evidence of infection. This infection can be a bacterial infection or some protozoal infection like amebiasis and giardiasis and the stool should be tested for ova and cyst as well. You will need a course of antibiotic to get rid of the infection.

Good luck
