Shell saidAfter three days do my hands still smell like this?
does it mean I'm going to die?
Oh, I hardly think so. I'm not aware that garlic is fatal, other than to those who encounter your breath.
Garlic odor, like onions, enters directly into your bloodstream. If you consume a great deal it will linger for a while before it leaves your system. And your hands will smell because the garlic is exuding from inside your body through perspiration, not because it's still clinging to your skin externally.
When I used to visit New Orleans and eat the local food I would piss garlic smell for a good 3 days afterwards. If this persists past 5 days I would see a doctor. Otherwise, relax, this is what a large amount of garlic will do.
