We talk about poop and pee and tissues all the time. I wanna know WTF is with the FARTING! OMG the smell fills the whole house and wafts up stairs to my room. It is NOT a human smell!!!!! It can best be described as a skunk, that ate 10 lbs of garlic, rolled around in sauerkraut,climbed up her butt and died! Anyone else dealing with this? BTW, she has NO sense of smell. She is SOOOOO lucky!

I worked with a man who farted constantly and smelled as you describe. Turns out he had diabetes. I would discuss the intensity of the smell to her Dr. Does she have hidden food allergies? Can you gradually change her diet, eliminating white flour, lowering sugar intake, and increasing the fiber content by adding fruits and vegetables. I feel for you. I loved my co worker but that was living hell

My MIL let's one just about every time she gets up off the couch. She did it one time when she was here for my daughter's birthday party and we all tried to ignore it. My three year old didn't ignore it though and hollered out Eeeewwwww! She was so embarrassed. Then sometimes she'll let out silent but deadly ones then hug me and I'm trapped, trying not to gag. I don't know if it's her diet or medication. She takes a probiotic every day and is convinced that vitamins make her eat more, causing weight gain. I don't know if anything will help.

Well, I put a "stick on" type air freshener right by her bedroom door, it's helping. I will talk to her Doc at our monthly appt, as well. Thanx Y'all!

Agree it sounds like something's not quite right that should be easy to get under control with some simple adjustments - nobody's smell of roses and violets but it shouldn't be unbearable!

Then again, how do you ignore the noise? Once the person is deaf and thinks she's being discreet… and beats a tattoo as she walks across the room… and you fatally catch your young nephew's eye… I tell myself as long as she doesn't notice you've got the giggles you're not hurting her dignity… For shame...

I think the idea of "active cultures" sounds good to cut down on the source. To protect your nose, I recommend lighting a candle. It really does work pretty well to burn up the sulfur odors. My husband is a big fan of British style beers, many of which are "Burtonized" by the use of gypsum, a sulfate compound that provides a distinctive "nose" to the resulting flatulence. Try a candle, and get her to the doctor.

I was thinking of some other kind of F. Flatulence...foul...funky at best! My MIL uses yogurt with active cultures, like something called good belly if she feels very odorous. My mother used to take these packets of active culture and dissolve in yogurt.

There is a healthy bowel odor that is easily identified, and there are odors caused by medication. zoolife is right, if the odor is abnormal, the gut flora is abnormal. Yogurt promotes normal gut flora. Chlorophyll helps neutralize odor. You can control odors by consuming buttermilk, cranberry juice, orange juice, parsley, tomato juice and yogurt.

Oh no Bonichak!
Maybe some vicks salve under your nose? It does help. We used to use it when I was a police officer if we had to deal with bodies that had begun to decay. But from
your description, it might not be strong enough.

Bonichak, I'm so sorry, but your description was hilariously funny! Yep it sounds like something really funky is going on there, time for a High Colonic Irrigation. Utube will actually give you a look see at the procedure. I make not go this route immediately maybe try the health food store of a Colon Cleanse. The gut in my opinion and I've read is where all disease starts if not cleaned out it can be a toxic place breeding ground for disease. Really sorry but if British comedy writers want some new material it's on this site LOL!

I thought you meant the F-word as in a parent cussing like that left and right. I have a friend who must take meds for her heart. One of the side effects is that it makes her fart a LOT. She does it all the time. She told me that her fart doesn't smell because she takes ginger pills. I don't know if this might work with your mom? It won't stop the farting but atleast it might cut down the smell?

Seriously, you can get charcoal pills may help. Harvard Health Publications has a number of suggestions in an article called "12 tips for reducing gas". one or another may help. Good luck. I hope it is nothing seriously wrong in your mum's gut. It sounds like a bit of dysbiosis which is an imbalance in the various bugs (bacteria, yeast)which are normal to the gut. Apparently a yeast excess in the gut can cause the problem your mum has. A yeast overgrowth can be caused by too many antibiotics. There is medication to help reduce the yeast.
