I don't know my mom's good friend recently admitted to her that she has that rare condition where she smells like fish constantly, she got blood work and have seen specialist. She said people around her would leave soap on her desk and stuff until one of her friends pulled her aside. I've never smelt her but she stands far away from people and basically takes a sponge bath every two hours. It sucks because there's no cure for it. I don't know that might be the case with yourcoworker here or maybe she just doesn't showerCry

Let HR handle it. U don't know what's going on with this person and for real for real...it's not your business. Don't get me wrong...it's sucks but be mindful of how you come off if u approach the person ...in email or physically. (which I wouldn't recommend) You'll be the one looking like an asshole. Not to mention u just might be the one to fired since you could open up your company to a lawsuit.

I got two stories. 1. We had the same thing on my job. Dude walking around hella stank. Co-worker brought in a can of Big Fresh (yes Big Fresh) and got in trouble. Come to find out HR already knew. It was his medication.
2. this involves a co-worker that I work closely with and she's excellent peeps. I've known and worked with her for over 8 years. So I went out with some black co-workers and one of the newer girls at the time brought her up. She got shut down real quick. The folks who really knew this woman from way back never said what the issue was but whatever it was it and she was not to be talked about. I've never asked (and i'll never ask my coworker ) but since newgirl got shut down so quick that leads me to believe that with her it's not because she doesn't wash. *shrugs* sometimes she comes in smelling like armpits and other times she comes in april fresh.

sorry for all the words and yeah I know. Those were cool stories.

In my clinic there is an anonymous evaluation you get on a monthly basis from supervisors and employees. One of the questions asks if the individual practices good hygiene as well as arrives to work fresh and dressed appropriately. We always laugh at that question, but I guess now I know why it is necessary.

my friend says there was a girl at her job who had a horrid BO cause by some sort of unusual gynae issues. There was nothing the girl could do about the smell. I would just die.Dead

we are too quick to judge. Im pretty sure no one enjoys stinking on purpose. maybe she has a condition? if she does, leaving her a note and soap wont help. The latter is rude IMO --unless you know she's being smelly on purpose

Do you speak casually with her? I think forming a friendly relationship would help especially since she obviously doesnt have good enough acquaintances at work. Soon after, pull her to the side and tell her she has a distinctive smell. Tell her that you had a similar problem growing up (even if its a lie) and how u overcame it by wearing a certain brand of deodorant, body powder, showering twice daily etc. End the convo on a good note. If nothing change, then report it to HR.

I work with a girl who is straight musty. I wonder if im the only one who can tell or do other ppl smell it but they just don't say sh*t. she has a lil work clique so im surprised none of them aint let her know she might wanna shower before work.

some ppl just slack. they shower the night before and only "wash up" in the morning. hey summer time is in full effect, only ppl who haven't hit puberty can get away with that...and even then its good to get kids hygiene together early

unless u sweating oceans in your sleep, i dont see the problem with the bold. taking 2 showers within an inactive 8/9hr time period for why?
