Skin smells

My daughter developed a poop smell on the top of her head.
At first, about a week ago, I thought she may have gotten some on her hands and into her hair (although she is typically very clean).
But after several showers, the smell persists. I think it might be coming through her pores or hair follicles.
My husband also can smell it, so it's not just me.
Does anyone have an answer to this mystery?
Thanks.

Perhaps this should be checked out by your doctors
There may be a metabolic reason for this....

I hope there is a simple answer, but I agree with Trysha.

That's all I could really see on my Google search, possible metabolic issue. I also read it could be related to leaky gut.
I hope someone has had an experience with this issue though, because what I read seems so vague.

Haven't ever heard of this but poor H . I'm guessing you've washed her hair thoroughly a couple times?

I would check with the doctor.

We dropped SCD and started adding in foods in August little by little. But she's been eating what we eat fully for awhile. Nothing stands out.
I guess we'll have to puzzle it out.
