I'm a 21 year old male and I seemed to have developed an odd odor from my inner groin area. The odor is similar to the smell of a woman's vagina. I would also like to mention that before this smell occured I was experiencing slight discomfort in my penis. It never was never painful, it was only a slight irritation in my urethra. I have also noticed that my urine has adopted a strange smell as well. The smell of my urine almost coincides with what kind of food I eat - my urine smell like the food I eat sometimes. Sounds weird huh? Your input is much appreciated.
A fungal infection can be very common in the groin. You can have this area looked at to ensure this isn't the case. The groin is generally a moist area - making it an ideal location for fungus to grow. There are a variety of anti-fungal creams to help with treating this disorder.
I would also be tested for various forms of STDs - with urethral swabs or urine tests. A physical examination of the prostate can also be considered.
You can discuss these options with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
