Odor smell from vagina

Hello, I ve been having a clear, thick mucous like discharge from my vagina. I also noticed a weird smell like cornflakes. Usually people talk about a fishy smell, but no, mine smells like cornflakes. I don t even eat cornflakes. When I first started gettig this discharge, I had very intense itching inside my vagina nd around the vulva. It was also red and swollen, but now none of those symptoms are present except for the discharge and cornflake smell. Can you give me an idea of what this might be please?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It's quite possible it could be candidiasis with cottage cheese type of discharge, inflamed and red vagina.

Have you tested your blood sugar?

You can receive an antifungal treatment orally but you need to consult with your gynecologist and get it looked at first.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
