Odors are gasses produced by bacteria feeding in the area. One important factor in treating such areas is lifting the skin away and getting it dry several times a day with a hair dryer. Moisture from sweat feeds the problem. Keeping the area clean (soap/water) and dry will help. Another exam may be necessary to plan a way to resolve the mess.
