  • Drink lots of water if you don't have an infection some women just have an odor but I found when I drink lots of water and stay away from soda's and sweet tea it makes a difference..........try it it cant hurt

  • Hormones, yeast infection, reaction to soap, detergent or dryer sheets, being unclean...lots of reasons.

  • Any number of things... DON'T DOUCHE!!! it'll make it worse!! Try calling the doc and see if you can get an appt.. you may have an infection and need antibiotics. or try that special womens body wash... I think it's made by the same company that makes the douche.

  • well first it could just be a bacterial infection or your ph balance might be alittle off , the first thing you want to do is NOT use any types of douche , feminie wash , powder or anything of that sort with out been diagnose because it will only make it worst. you do need to drink pleanty of water and intake as many fresh fruit and veggies as possible. only wear cotton panties and don't put in soap in the area just on the outter surface and very gentle cleanser at that....you can by douch pouches but you are going to dump the contents out rinse very well and replace with warm water not too hot water and squirt that in your special area you should notice a difference with 7 to ten days if not please visit your family doctor
