Is a chemical, hydrocarbon smell to sweat indicative of illness?


Posted by microshells

My boyfriend has started smelling heavily of hydrocarbon.  The closest I can some to describing it is that it smells somewhat like diesel.  He doesn't work with diesel or anything that would cause this smell.  He leaves extremely oily sweat stains on the sheets and pillows.  The smell seems to be getting stronger and I am concerned.  What could cause this?
