I've never *washed* any of dd unless it's really dirty - mud on her feet or whatever (other than hair, which is a different issue and difficult...) So I don't wash her vulva, certainly not with soap. She just sits in the bath with me and splashes about.
It is very possible, and even likely, that the odor is caused by the yeast, especially if it has spread up into her vagina. I think you are wise to not wash her vulva with soap in general. I would talk to your healthcare provider and see if s/he thinks a systemic yeast treatment is indicated.
As a mom, if you are sure it is yeast, I would recommend grapefruit seed extract orally as well as a GSE wash for the rashy area. See this website for details. Read the whole page; while most of it refers to thrush, there is info on diaper area and vaginal yeast as well. Of course, you may want to get a definitive diagnosis before you go that route.

When I use soap on myself, it burns. Why would I do that to my baby? She gets the same treatment I do, water and a washcloth.
