Itching, pain in surrounding area of vagina and vulva, foul smell from region. Treatment options?

Hi, I am suffering itchy and a little bit painful in the surrounding area of vagina and vulva . In addition, there is a really stinky smell from the area. I had it for about three days, because of this, I have to keep chaning new pants and washing the area with a bottle of feminine wash I bought, none of the method is really change anything. the only reason I can think of is that I recently used a laundrette service and the washing powder they provided. Please advise what should I do? Many thanks.

Hello. thanks for he query.

Your symptoms of foul smelling vaginal discharge with itching suggest vaginal infection . it could be tricomoniasis.

Get a swab test for diagnosis.

Maintain personal hygiene.
Do not use scents, feminine wash or washing powder. Only use plain water.
Take antibiotics for vaginal infection after getting local examination done by a Gynaecologist.

Hope this helps.

regards,
Dr Nilofer
