    If it's as strong of an odor as it initially was, you will need to try a different anti biotic. If it is much less, a little fishy odor is perfectly normal.  Your Ph balance is mostly to do with that odor, ask your doctor (or maybe even google) how to clean yourself to minimise odor (too much soap is bad) and what foods may upset the balance

    Use an apple cider vinegar and water douche (about a quart of warmish water and 1/2 cup of the vinegar). This is an odor neutralizer which won't affect your pH or your natural bacteria. The vinegar smell doesn't linger long at all.

    It's not recommended to use store bought douches. They are loaded with chemicals, and can do more harm than good. The vinegar is natural.

    You can also use this solution to rinse that area after a shower. No need to rinse it off with water, just pat dry.
