Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes veet or any other depilatory cream can lead to contact irritant dermatitis. That is why even the manufacturers advise not to use it over genital area as the area is quite sensitive. Irritant dermatitis may present as a slightly serous/ straw colored or bloody discharge. This can be treated by cleaning the area with XXXXXXX warm saline water and application of steroid antibiotic cream. if pain is there, take ibuprofen and if itching is present take tablet cetirizine. I would encourage a dermatologist's visit so that a proper examination of affected area can be done as a foul smelling discharge can occur in pelvic inflammatory disease or other infections too like bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas infection, gonorrhoea etc.( provided you are sexually active)
Hope that helped.
Should there be any other query, please write back.
Take care
