How do I get rid of this smell?

I have an interesting smell "down there". It smells like onions and garlic! I have been eating a lot of produce, and that usually happens when I eat those two foods, but now that I'm eating them more often, the smell won't go away. What can I do?

  • I was told by an older woman that her "remedy" for that is: First take a bubble bath. Next rinse in a new bath of just white vinegar. That is it. I would probably ask my doctor though just in case.

    Good luck.

  • Use one of those cooter deodorant sprays for "down there" Also see your gyn to make sure nothing is wrong.

  • Definately look into your appitite. And call your doc & get his/her pro. advise. The sprays help temp. And thats gross anyway. Who wants to spray their coochie w/ chemicals. lol! Anyway. the vinegar bath sounded better. Try douching in the mean time. I douch after every cycle. Just to clean it out. :)

  • I know two different people who can't eat garlic (makes their breath, their sweat and their parts smell like garbage) and one woman who can eat all the broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower she wants --unless she eats meat, then it also makes her b.o. a horror....

    Eating lots of fresh parsley may help. The pineapple suggestion is a good idea...
