How do you control body odor in the elderly?


Answer by  Inge (484)

If deodorants or anti-perspirents aren't the answer, applying baby powder daily helps. If skin irritation isn't a problem, use a scented product. Plain cornstarch works also.

Unfortunately, there really is no controlling body odor in the elderly. Elderly just have their own odor that radiates from their wrinkly skin. It is a pretty universal smell, which is probably why your grandma and my grandma have smelled the same.

You would control their body odor like you do your own. Make sure they bathe regularly and use a deodorant. Many elderly people don't know when to use the toilet so they have accidents. Make sure they can clean theirself up.
