Stinky shower drain - HELP!

We have a shower stahl in our master bathroom that has a very bad sewer smell coming from it. It has been this way for atleast 3 months and we have tried everything! We have removed the drain cover, cleaned out any hair etc. and even pour liquid drano down it just in case there were any clogs. There doesn't appear to be any cracks in the drain piping and there IS water in the trap. We have not actually used this shower for months although I do daily run the water to keep things moving etc. Any suggestions? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Jbrowning19, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Sorry this response took so long. Try pouring a 3 part water/1 part bleach mixture into the drain. There may be bacteria growing in the drainline or trap. Good luck.
