Welcome to ehealthforum.
Do not be scared to go to your doctor/gynecologist. The altered vaginal discharge, smell and itching along with appearance of ‘bumps’ could be suggestive of infection and also allergic reaction (if the symptoms started within 20-30 minutes of applying the cream). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination and vaginal smear test (if indicated) to see what could be the cause for the symptoms. Treatment would be started appropriately based on examination and test findings.
Take care.
