probably you are allergic to local progesterone . you can take these tab orally with similar efficacy . don't use soap or any other medication down. the irritation will subside. if no improvement pl see a doctor for local exam. best wishes

thanks a lot doctor for the reply ,

i have got red blisters as if skin has been removed and its paining a lot when i urinate and specially when i put water.

if i take progestrone orally it is equally effective?

i mean my doctor says progestrone is only 10 % as effective orally if taken instead of vaginally?
is it true?

average life of sperms is 72 hours. you can apply clotrimazole cream locally for relief and can take cetrizine tabs
