Show of hands... MS vs. Metabolic

Does anyone else ever get an odor emitting from their face?

Since I was about fifteen I've noticed that after eating anything (especially fatty foods, it's much worse) that I get a sort of stinky fatty oil smell emitting from the pores of my face around my nose and chin and cheek bones. All I have to do is rub my face and I can smell it on my hand.

It is definately something internal, because I can wash my face until it is chapped and ...
