Brief Answer:
Mostly Bartholin abscess. Rule out other STDs.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there, I have understood your concern and and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

As per your description, the condition looks like Bartholin gland abscess.
Pain, sweilling,foul smell discharge - all are suggesting infection in the Bartholin gland.

As treating doctor,I would have suggested a week long course of broad spectrum antibiotic, Amoxycillin and clavulinic acid combination.And suitable pain killer.
Also get basic hemogram,urine routine examination and tests for STDs.

Also, it is important to have good sex counseling and measures to prevent STDs.

I hope this answer helps you.
Thanks.
