Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Vaginal swelling, itching and pain along with odor can be due to fungal infection (thrush), bacterial vaginosis, herpes, trichominiasis, and gonorrhea or Chlamydia infection. In latter two the vaginal discharge is clear and watery, while the discharge is curd like thick in thrush, greenish in trichomoniasis and non specific in bacterial vaginosis. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist and get this investigated. Hope this helps. Take care!
