Hygiene: Hygiene probably is the answer. Shower daily, washing the genital and anal area with soap and water, including retracting the foreskin if you are uncircumcised. If you are overweight, i.e. with skin folds in the groin or genital area that don't get much air exposure, use cornstarch or talcum powder to keep dry, and maybe wash with soap and water twice daily. If odor continues, see a doctor.

Check whether your: Local hospital has a clinic!- there must be some free clinics somewhere near you. This is too long to have an infection if it is one?
