Why my baby's anterior fontanelle smell different than the other body parts? The smell is not that bad but im confuse what make it smell like that?

Enjoy your baby! ...Read more

How do you know if bv is worser & can you use ph body wash for the smell?

BV treatment needed: I doubt any body wash will help much with the odor of bacterial vaginosis. If you still have the odor, BV may not be worse, but you can assume you still have it. Speak with your doctor about re-treatment, or perhaps preventive treatment with vaginal metronidazole (MetroGel) or boric acid vaginal capsules. If your doc isn't familiar with these, try to find a gyn with special interest in infections. ...Read more

Glad you overcame: Embarrassment is not unusual but it is great that you could overcome it to get this checked out. Medical helpers are familiar with such feelings and such problems.
