Usually very foul odor indicates bacterial infection with most probable E.coli. The condition needs to be treated with antibiotics like azithromycin along with secnidazole and Fluconazole as a single dose for both partners at the same time after food. The flakes on your husband's penile shaft are most likely due to candidiasis but Tinea cruris has to be ruled out too. Practice abstinence for a week after medication and it usually clears off in a week. please consult a Doctor if there is no significant relief.
