What causes vaginal odor?
Get an internal examination done so that you can receive right treatment
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.
Since when you have this awful vaginal odour? Do you feel it is related to any food that you might have added to your diet recently? If so you need to change the food.
At this age other reasons for awful vaginal odour are infection, estrogen deficiency or a forgotten tissue inside the vagina. Therefore it is important that you see a Gynecologist / GP for internal examination so that you can receive optimum treatment. If it is due to infection ( Bacterial vaginosis) your doctor will prescribe antibiotics.
In case of estrogen deficiency applying estriol cream for few weeks will relieve the symptom.
I suggest don't use over the counter medications. Always use mild soap to clean the vulva. Do not use Vaginal douche as it can cause more harm. Use medicines after consulting doctor.
I hope this is helpful.
If you have further concerns do write to me.
I will be happy to answer.
