Yeast Infection Bad Smell

I have struggled with a yeast infection for years that I have just recently been able to get somewhat under control. For the most part, as long as I eat a very strict diet and eat a tablespoon of coconut oil a day I can keep it at bay. The problem is this, I've never had a smell with a yeast infection before. It's always been discharge and discomfort but that's it. Recently I had unprotected sex with my partner who is uncircumcised and now my yeast infection smells sour. I cannot get the smell to go away and I am extremely depressed about it. I didn't realize he had this same smell on him down there until after we had sex. It was too late to do anything about it. I don't know what to do and I have scoured the internet looking for answers. Everything says it's just a yeast infection, but mine has never smelled before! Please help me.
Right now I am on a strict diet (I had strayed away and eaten things I shouldn't have for a little while) and eating coconut oil and just started taking 2 teaspoons of MSM powder yesterday. Will be doing that daily. I can't deal with the sour smell, I really need help.

If it's not an STD or an STI, you might have gotten a form of yeast infection that just smells. Realistically he should get his yeast checked out as well as you should not both be giving it to each other back and forth. It really needs to be addressed, and make sure that it's not an STD or STI. Being uncircumcised is no reason to have a yeast infection.

If you are sure that it's not please follow a good candida diet, one is provided on this site. Take probiotics to maintain good gut flora, and just stay on top of it.
