How do I tell my friend she has really bad BO?
If it had happened once or twice, I wouldn’t think much of it, but a friend of mine has a pungent stale sweat smell every time I’m around her. If it was my sister, or a close friend, I’d let them know – but I’ve only known her for under a year. All I know is, if it was me, I’d want someone to tell me. How do I go about this?

I totally agree with you, Kate. I would want to know too. But this obviously is a very delicate one – for all you know, her odour problem could be caused by a health issue. Rather than raising it with her, I would try to talk to one of her closer friends first – or perhaps seek advice from a family member before you talk to your pal.
