Conditions with symptom: 'stench'
So I'm 14 years old and I'm pretty sure I have BV. It started a year ago and it's been bothering me ever since!! I can't even sit crossing my legs without bringing up the smell and it making me so embarrassed and miserable;..( And I've tried so many things eg: body sprays, showering staying clean but nothing seems to work!!! It kind of looks a bit clumpy and sticky and the Colour is sometimes yellow, but other times it's watery and there's this foul stench which I can't describe.I feel really scared to tell my parents especially going to the doctors. What can I do to stop this?? Please help!
Firstly don't be embarrassed to seek help I myself Suffered bv it's extremely common and many Times mistaken as thrush ! Neither of which are STI's using sprays soaps excessive cleaning will make it worse . Vaginas are self cleaning ONLY WATER is needed Shower instead of baths too . I would advise u to see GP or go to GUM clinic So they can collect sample for screening then u will be Able to get correct treatment and resolve everything Good luck take care
Hey, I'm about the same age as you I have pretty much exactly the same symptoms but it has only just started i have told. My parents about other things that happen and have gone to the doctors a lot before because I have had different things wrong with my down below parts the only thing is this time I feel self conciouse because I'm older and I don't want anyone looking but I guess I should just go to the doctor and so should you to just get it checked out its better then being in discomfort Hope this helps Molly
My boyfriend's seamen smells really quite strong and foul. We've been together for a few months and it has always been that way. At first I thought the smell was coming from me and started looking up bacterial vaginosis, but no, it's definitely coming from him. My previous two partners had seamen which didn't smell at all so I find it a bit odd. After sex, the stench of the fluid oozing from me can often fill the room. (Apologies for being so crude but this is embarrassing bodies). We could never go swinging cause it would be embarrassing. (not that we have any desire to). Anyway, from what he's said to me, I think he's had it all his life. What could cause it? Also, it smells stronger if he doesn't come for a few days. Why would this be?
im a young woman 19 years of age. within the last 6-8 months, both my big toes started swelling up near the top of where the nail grows. i went to see my doctor who wouldn't do anything about it and told me just to leave it and that it would go down. within one week i couldn't even walk properly, and then on my right toe it had swelled up too much and split open. lots of pink/yellow puss came out. since then, there has been non stop swelling surrounding the cuticles on both my bog toes, and it now seems to be spreading down the sides as well, and is very painful. my left toenail is incredibly pussy and it has a horrid stench to it, but my right toenail, the one that split, is constantly weepy and bloody with puss. there is also no skin attached to the top of the nail where it grows out, and so to keep it clean is very painful, as iv got constant exposed flesh underneath. ( i have a 10 month old son who likes to crawl a lot and grab my toes when i'm not looking, it is very painful) i have now seen four doctors about this, and the last one didn't go over any options with me, and just told me that my toenails need to be removed. i have also been on three doses of flucloxacilin for my toes. please can you help, as i really don't want my toenails pulled off, as there is a high chance that they won't grow back. do you know what my condition is and if so, how can it be treated without my toenails being removed?
Iv had the same problem with my toe nails. Painfull, pussy, bleeding and exposed skin. My doc said it was an in grown nail, a nurse said fungle infection. Well no info I got helped or medication, so I started putting Sudocrem on every day. 1 toe has healed compleatly the other is nearly there. The nail is even growing again! I have a lot of faith in Sudocrem!!
