It's a faint onion smell. There's no burning but I itch in the area between my legs and 'down there' area. I think the itching may be due to a rash. Anyways what would cause the smell? I don't take any meds and I'm not having sex. There no abnormal discharge, so I don't think I have a yeast infection. Could it be caused my to much onion in my diet?

Yep go to the doc. Anytime there is a foul smell, infection is suspect. Your discharge should have a faint smell to it, but if you can smell it even when you're not trying to, (like naked and standing up) that's a problem.

And the itching is just another thing that makes me think of an infection. Go to the doc. It could be a yeast infection, could be a bacterial infection, but either way, it needs to get treated. You don't want these things to stick around.
