Need to be treated.: You have an infection called Bacterial Vaginosis. This gives a discharge like rotten eggs. It probably has spread to the ano-rectal area. You need to see a family doctor or Ob/Gyn to check and test in. This infection can easily be treated with antibiotic.

Gynecologist: Yeast infection can cause vaginal discharge and itching. Bacterial vaginitis can cause foul smelling discharge. Both of these infections need more than vigorous cleaning to be cleared. It is best for you to be examined by your gynecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
