Not sure if yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis!

Patient

Q: I'm not sure if I have a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. I've had it for a while, but can't go to a doctor yet because of money. I have sort of white stringy clumps that form everyday around my clitoris and inside of outer lips, but that is the only area. I clean my vagina daily...as to try and get rid of it and the smell. I don't get white clumpy discharge. My discharge is usually just clear, but kind of excessive a lot of times. It has been a milky greyish color, but only in a few instances. It doesn't necessarily burn, but i do get very instant terrible itches down there. There is also a noticeable odor, it does sort of smell fishy, but it also just smells...bad. I'm not sure how to describe it. I hope you can help! Thanks!
