what will you do if you smell something bad on the person beside you?

Normally i just take a hankie and then cover my nose because if i do what you do in an elevator and people would look because you knelt down , you might offend the person next to you. It is not good to offend other people, just be considerate enough that some people do have body odors due to the food they intake. I tell you this, in India you will smell much more but don't let that take you down. Just act normal to them, cover your nose. At first it is really hard for me, in a bus surrounded by you know what i mean, the smell is like an atomic bomb, i really put my green balm and spread some of it on my nose or sometimes i take white flower medicated oil, put it on my nose and then cover my nose with a hankie.Happy Mylotting!

If it was me and the floor which I am going to is not high or just about to reach, I would quickly press for the next level and leave the elevator and use the stairs. But if it's still many floors to go, I think I would say excuse be to certain people and move from my position to another.

I can understand the situation you were in.If I were in your place i would turn to the opposite direction.People would see it indifferently too.But we can't help other than it.Next time,be careful,not to enter into a crowded elevator.Cheers!

Every time I encountered this scene, I will avoid that person actually and never got nearer to him or her again. Or sometimes if the circumstances prompt me to be near that person I have to held my breath for seconds and make an excuse and breath deeper outside..hahahha!
