Was taking Metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis but it caused severe itching and a foul odour. Does it mean I have a yeast fungal infection instead?

Maybe, probably not. Yeast infections cause itching but usually not odor. Probably the odor is from the BV itself, even if first noticed after starting treatment. But regardless of odor, the itching could indicate a yeast infection. Allergy to metronidazole unlikely but possible. You also need to be checked for other STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. Read more...

I have bacterial vaginosis and I'm on day 5 of treatment. I also have bad anal itching as well. Is this due to the BV and if so, how can I stop it?

Itching and BV. Anal itching is not usually associated with bacterial vaginosis. It can happen due to pinworms, especially in younger children, a hemorrhoid, a yeast infection, or irritation/allergy to an agent. It is possible that you reacted to the metrogel. Try Anusol-HC suppository. If taking oral flagyl(metronidazole) then it could be sensitivity to colored ,scented toilet paper, soap, or detergent. Read more...
