You could have a high sulfur content in your tap water. But if it only comes when you're showering, you could have a problem specifically in your pipes that lead to your shower.

The bad egg smell when you are showering usually comes from water sitting in the drains. I would recommend pouring some drano or liquid plumber down the drain.

Your water probably has sulfur in it. Sulfur is a component of acid rain and is common in heavily polluted areas. The dissolved sulfur causes a smell commonly described as rotten eggs. You may be able to get a whole house filter for your water system that could filter out the sulfur and eliminate the smell.

If you are showering and experience a bad egg smell, it is typically caused by the water. Water quality and type are key factors in the smell. Typically water that contains sulfur or if you have hard water that can cause this smell.
