Smelly wind - daily for 3 weeks

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a stomach bug for 3 days at the start of the month, after it cleared up and I started eating again I’ve notice that every afternoon and evening I develop horrifically sulphur smelling farts, it’s pretty constant. I’ve taken probiotics, wind ease tablets, peppermint tea and nothing shifts it or improves it. Is it time to see a dr or just persist with home treatment. I suffer from ibs but never had this before and I’m assuming it’s to do with the bug. I don’t have any other symptoms

    Try adjusting your diet.... for few days... its more likely that the bug is responsable...

    Try gluten...wheat..lactose free for couple days...+for the few days stop taking probiotics.

    I bet itwill be gone...

    The bug may have triggered an IBS flare up.  Gas is common with IBS.  Try a food diary to see what foods may be triggering the gas.  Foods like baked beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage can be gassy.  Avoid fizzy drinks.
