Okay up until now I haven't posted on this, but I have fungal/mold issues and also have noticed that SWEETish smell coming through my pores. Sometimes it's another type smell that's kind of FLORAL or something, but I can't stand it.
So I researched scent, chemistry, etc.. and landed on ~pheromones~. Pheromones are odorous substances released/secreted in order to evoke behavior or sexua| responses.
"Pheromones are also used by some fungi, slime molds, and algae as attractants in reproduction; organisms of complementary reproductive cell types grow or move toward each other."
Fungi and algae secrete pheromones to attract sperms and induce their reproductive organs to grow... and cellular slime molds use it to gather all it's members into one place.
New research suggests that in addition to chemical signals from its own species, the yeast, called Candida albicans, also gets turned on by the so-called pheromones sent out by ~other~ species.
