Welcome to e health forum.

It is not possible to confirm presence of a vaginal infection just based on the smell.

If there is excessive whitish discharge (curd like), irritation and itching it could be a sign of fungal infection (candidiasis).

If there is redness, purulent discharge (yellow thick) and there is abnormal smell, it could be a sign of bacterial infection.

In case of such infections (fungal or bacterial), you may benefit by consulting your doctor or a OB-GYN for proper medical advice.
