I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. I would very much like to see photos of her skin. Which breed and how old is she? The foul odor and oily-like substance indicate seborrhea oleosa which is a skin disease of maturation and keratinization. This can be a primary skin disorder in some breeds but most often a secondary disorder to any chronic skin condition.
