Vaginal/Perineal Odor

I have a problem in my groin area, heavy sweating, pungent odor.  I am a very clean person, but I can't seem to put my finger on why I smell everyday after thoroughly washing.  I have been  to every dr. know to man for two years and no relief and no support.  I work in a office in close proximity with my coworkers who wonder will they ever get relief.  I've been researching intertrigo.    What dr. should I see about getting throughly checked out.  I feel like I am in the five items or less line when seeing my dr.

Could it be bacterial vaginosis?  That has a weird smell, but different than a yeast infection.

I've been cleared for BV and all STD's, three times actually.  Yeast is the only thing that is in agreement with the symptoms.

intertrigo has a terrible odor usually if bacteria is present. a dermatologist would be your best bet but they are usually booked up forever and very expensive. your general practitioner should be able to offer you some relief. This site is also a good place to start: http://www.dermadoctor.com/pages/newsletter163.asp
