Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Probably you got an infection in your vagina because of using of vinegar. It might have resulted in removing healthy bugs from there which usually fight against infection and germs. So I would suggest you to stop using vinegar at first place and then take tablet Metronidazole three times a day for seven days. It will relieve the smell and wash the area only with plain water as many times as possible and use only and only loose cotton underwear and do not use any other cosmetic products over there.
