Hi Anon,

Thanks for your post. One of the main reasons this might be happening is due to body odors. Do you use deodorant? or maybe the type of perfume.  It might be a good idea to ask someone close to you and that you can trust. They might be able to honestly let you know if they smell any odor. 

Best of luck,

Dear Daisy,
Of course I use unscented deodorant, sometimes spritz a little scent of something light, or no body spray at all and still the comments are there...
