hello,
Thanks for the query.

Your symptom of white dry skin followed by soreness suggests chemical injury.
I think your skin was exposed to some allergens leading to sores with secondary infection.
I recommend you visit your Gynecologist at the earliest for detailed examination of sore.
You can apply local antibacterial cream for secondary infection and antipyretic for high temperature.

Hope this helps. You may write to me anytime for further clarifications.
regards,
Dr Nilofer

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.

Before applying any antibacterial cream(e.g. zovi ointment) i suggest you to consult a Gynecologist for full evaluation. Specialist supervision is required to avoid unnecessary side effects.
Hope this helps.
