It would be a very smart and good idea to have a complete physical with bloodwork done. Call and schedule with your PCP immediately.

Take a shower son. Gotta get rid of that odor. Hot shower and lots of soap and shampoo on all 2,000 body parts will fix that issue.

You need to shower very well TWICE a day.
