In line with what sailmed recommended, we typically flush the head with the adjacent handheld shower fitting, instead of seawater - makes a difference in head odors.
Our Lavac heads use a vacuum for flushing, but only after the gasketed bowl lid is lowered. By pumping the flush lever with the lid up, the fresh water and other stuff you deposited, is emptied without being replaced by seawater. Don't know if this applies to your Wilcox head though.
PS, also helps to have a 140 gallon fresh water tank (g)
