The images suggest that you have developed a fungal infection. A fungal infection will cause dryness and itching but no foul odor. The small yellow bumps that you see are enlarged glands due to the inflammation.

While Olive oil will decrease the dryness, it will not have any affect on the infection.

Fungal infection is not caused by sexual intercourse. But stress from the rape can lower the body's resistance to infection. It can also cause changes to the vaginal ph which in turn causes flare up of fungal infection.

In your case, it is likely that the depression and stress has led to a low immunity and left you at risk for a fungal infection.

Please take Monistat - available without a prescription at any medical store. This will be effective in clearing up the infection.

I hope this helps.
