My teenage daughter says she has had an odour from down below

This answer was rated:

My teenage daughter says she has had an odour from `down below` since she was 11. She is now 17. She has had swabs taken by our gp only to find nothing wrong. She says she can smell it herself when she sits down. She is very clean and bathes daily. What could it be?



Thank-you for your question.


The problem you describe is most closely associated with an emotional or psychosexual problem - it stems from a belief that one is " dirty or unclean."


I would suggest that she is assessed by a clinical psychologist.


If not addressed this belief about herself could last her entire life.

She has had mental health problems for a number of years, I`m worried about telling her your reply. Do you realy think that could be it?

I have seen numerous cases over the years.

If the swabs are clear then invariably this is the problem.

Sorry to burden you with this - sometimes it would be easier if patients with these symptoms just HAD a good going pelvic infection.
