Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of altered and smelly vaginal discharge, appearance of bumps, burning could suggest chances of vaginal infection. You should consider visiting your healthcare provider/doctor at the earliest for examination and vaginal swab/smear test to identify causative agent. Get started on treatment as indicated by examination findings and investigation results. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. 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. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection.
Take care.
