Found a spot/lump on outer vagina, is purple/red, about half cm in width and isn't sore. Should I be worried? Scared it may be a tumour.

How do you cure/fix vaginal odors?

How do you cure/fix vaginal odors?

Diet and exercise: Often the flora (bacteria) of our vagina is affected by things like our diet and exercise and sleep and stress. Sometimes an odor can occur in response to outside, e.g. Change in soap, detergent, lubricant, new sex partner, etc. I recommend trying to find reason for odor first, and then try to treat with probiotics or making more of the good bacteria, lactobacilli.
