What is the difference between dandruff and nits?

Dandruff is a skin condition of the scalp that causes flakes to appear and is marked by itching. When your body renews the skin cells in your scalp, the old, dead ones are pushed to the surface. In some people, the body renews the skin cells too frequently for the old ones to be shed inconspicuously, causing a mass amount of dead skin to gather on the scalp, resulting in the condition known as dandruff.

Nits are head lice eggs. Coincidentally, having head lice can actually cause or increase flaking of the scalp, resulting in or worsening a case of dandruff. You can recognize nits because they are attached to the hairshafts and are usually present closer to the scalp. They do not comb out easily, and even when pinched between two fingers and tugged on may still be difficult to remove.

Dandruff, on the other hand, comes out easily and is flat. If you can scratch your scalp gently or brush your hands through your hair and white flakes fall out, it is dandruff. If there are white spots clinging to your hair and you cannot seem to remove them, they are most likely nits.

Why do Asians smell sour and malodorous?

I grew up around Asians from several different countries. My best friend and my goddaughter are Chinese. Not one of them ever smelled sour or malodorous that I can recall. I think this may be a case of over-generalization. You may know someone with poor hygiene or with different dietary habits, but that can have an effect on anyone. For instance, if a person eats a lot of curry, garlic, or onions, the scent may come through their pores. If it is a scent that you are not used to yourself, you will notice it more.

What should you do about a body odor problem?

In many cases the reeking has nothing to do with personal hygiene, neither with the daily washing routines nor with the usage of soap or deodorants. As a matter of fact, there are lots of people suffering from a commonly unknown disorder called bromhidrosis, an innocuous but distracting illness which causes a permanent and penetrative smell of sweat. The main cause of bromhidrosis is the bacterial flora of the skin. The main symptom of bromhidrosis is uncontrolled growth of special dermal bacteria. These bacteria assimilate the sweat on the skin, creating by-products like butanoic acid and formic acid which we recognize as the typical 'smell of sweat.'

It may also be from the genetic disease Trimethylaminuria, which causes bad body odor. This illness is commonly known as "TMAU-Syndrome". This is a condition that can be treated by your doctor. It's generally related to the chemistry in your body and sometimes by changing your diet can help, but visit your doctor and they can give you medications for this problem.

  • First of all, to clean outside of your penis, you just rub it with a soap. For the urethral area, widen it, and put the soapy water in. After that, squeeze your penis to get soapy water out of it again.

A man washes his penis just like any other part of his body; with soap and water. If the man is uncircumcised, he may need to pull back the foreskin to make sure the glans is cleaned properly.
The same way you would clean your body in the shower, do it and youll be fine. Remember, girls do NOT enjoy a smelly penis so clean it regularily

Not like a fish oil will! If it has been purified by the altomega process the krill oil doesn't even smell, If you open a bottle of fish or krill oil and it smells bad it is rancid already and will make you smell bad when you take it. So be careful what you spend your money on.
