Odor from inner groin area
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.
