The most important first step is to understand whether you currently have an infection- acute or chronic, which is what may be causing the persistent musty smell. Routine health visits, in addition to paying attention to the color of your vaginal discharge, will point you in the right direction.
If you don’t have an infection, it’s important to continue good hygiene measures, to address your nutrition, and to practice radical self-acceptance (which is easier said than done). Consider increasing fermented probiotic-rich foods in your diet, avoiding tight-fitting clothing, regulating your sugar intake, and boosting your hydration.
