Suggest treatment for a strong foul odor around the vagina

I have a problem vaginally. I told my doctor that I constantly feel like I have a yeast infection and I have a horrible odor. She wouldn’t do anything about it! My last trip to see her, she got mad, rolled her eyes and walked out of the room. Only to return and hand me a tube like thing with a long q-tip looking item in it! She told me to swan myself and bring it back and they would analyze it! Needless to say I never went back! Now I have no doctor and I still have the awful smell

Hello,

Before concluding that it is a yeast infection and starting treatment we have to whether it is a fungal, viral or bacterial infection. Better to take the advice of a gynecologist. Without examination and if required analysis of secretion, it is difficult to come to a conclusion. If it is confirmed, a fungal infection. Take a clotrimazole vaginal tablet. Insert it in the vagina after taking bath in the morning. If it is a bacterial infection, consult a gynecologist for further treatment.


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