I found this on the internet

Disinfecting a Stinky Toilet with a Rotten Egg Smell
If your bathroom smells like sewer, it’s important to take care of it right away. Repeated exposure is not only unpleasant but can lead to some health concerns.

A stinky toilet that has a rotten egg smell is from a gas called hydrogen sulfide. Bacteria that grows in the drain and sewer lines emits this smelly gas, and it’s vital to disinfect the pipes to remove it.




Pour white vinegar down the s-bend in the toilet to neutralize and flush away bacteria. If you do not have any vinegar, use chlorine bleach. If the smell persists, the problem might be faulty venting in the drainage system, and a plumber is needed.

Don’t forget to take care of cleaning your toilet tank, too. Although most smells do not originate from the tank, it’s not often an area we think about washing. Use vinegar or bleach to sanitize this forgotten toilet area to keep it fresh and odor-free.
