What causes brownish accumulation around the vulva area?

This is hella embarrassing but I ve had this problem for a really long time- there seems to be brown goo around my vulva- and when I wipe it it smells a lot like feces and looks like it. I thought maybe I had an infection bc it always comes back. I can t find any actual imformation on what to do and I m really embarrassed to ask my parents.

Hello welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advise.

You didn't mention your age or obstetric history.
According to your description, if we exclude infection, better to rule out the possibility of rectovaginal fistula.
Which can be seen in conditions like Crohn's disease or other inflammatory bowel diseases. In case of parous lady, injury during child birth, surgeries in pelvic areas should also be considered. As your problem is recurring, you better consult your Gynecologist once, get examined. By clinical examination and ultrasound the exact cause of your problem can be identified and treatment can be planned accordingly.

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