For only the past 2 or 3 days, I took Mucinex for a bad cold. The cold has cleared up and I have been off the medicine for a day and a half, but my urine and my vagina/vulva smell like Mucinex now... it is an icky, sulphur smell and not the way that you should smell down there... if that makes any sense... I tried showering more frequently, but that doesn't help the smell go away. I'm afraid when I am in public that people notice. What should I do?

Hi there,

Well I don't think anyone will really notice your urine ;-). Unless they really get close to you, I don't think they will notice how you smell down there either. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do but wait it out. Your only other option would be to get some breathable panty liners that are lightly scented. It won't take away the smell, but you might feel better about the fact you would be masking the smell to some degree.
