Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sores or blisters in vulval area, if associated with altered vaginal discharge along with foul smell suggests vaginal infection. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and vaginal swab/smear test to look for causative agent. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by the examination findings and investigation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
