Smelly &  itchy

Immediately after having my period, my vagina became very itchy and burny. And because I was scratching it looked as though it was swelling a little. Then after a day or two it started to give a real bad, almost stale, smell. Please explain...thanks.

It could be thrush. Try Canesten pessaries.

Oh and one more thing...the discharge is not normal...it' s kind of hard to describe. The discharge is off white, but almost lumpy.
