: Please Help!
: I believe that there are oil glands in the undersides the labia majora (or so my research has led me to believe) and I was wondering if anybody knows a successful means to cut back the oil production in these glands and get rid of the dirty feeling and associated "fishy" smell one gets because of it. I dont know if there are many woman who can relate with me(I sure hope so), but in my case it is this white oil build-up (which begins about 6hrs. after a bath)that creates an oduor "down there" that is purely disguisting. I didn't always have this problem it only seemed to start when I was about 17.
A fishy smell is not normal. Please check with your doctor to be sure there are no other problems causing this. Also please notet that if you use any bubbles or bath oil in your bath water this can cause irritation or chronic vaginal infections in some women. Get this checked out and good luck.
