Gooey brownish discharge that has a foul odor

04/07/2009

Question:

My 16 year old daughter has been having problems with a gooey brownish discharge that has a very foul odor and has some burning? She is not on her period and it is not due to come down. She is not sexually active. What could be the possible cause of this ? It is really effecting her emotionally and socially. Anything u could tell me would help. Thanks.

Answer:

She will need to be examined by someone experienced in seeing adolescent women in order to provide an answer and treatment advice.  It sounds as if it should be relatively straight forward to diagnose her with an appropriate examination.
