Today a patient came to me with a peculiar complaint. Whenever he goes out he attracts the flies in the vicinity! He has been suffering with this problem for last 7 years. Though he had mild axillary hyperhidrosis, there was no obvious bromhidrosis. Is this a type of bromhidrosis or a delusional state? There is a nice article on bromhidrosis here. According to them 'repopulation' of the intestines with healthy friendly bacteria (good quality Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria) may be helpful in some cases.
