Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the breast discharge that you describe without examining it. The altered color or smell could indicate possibility of infection, pre-cancerous changes etc. The discharge could also be due to probable hormonal derangements, hyperprolactinemia, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination and investigations to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any abnormal/new symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
