labial fissures can be due to dematitis like lichen planus and lichen sclerosis.

You have to properly moisturize it by applying aloe vera ointment.

Clobetasol ointment locally is the treatment of choice

If there is itching then you can take levocetrizine tablet

If you get a chance it is always better to show it to a doctor and get investigations done like blood sugar F etc

Best wishes

I have clobetasol propionate cream 5%. I used for a rash I had on my chest. Can I use that? I though fissures were a bacterial infection. Isn't clobetasol a steroid. Shouldn't I use an antibacterial cream instead or antibiotics...? Sorry just confused. I truly appreciate your help. Thank you so much! XXXXXX

Yes you can use the cream containing clobetasol dipropionate or propionate 5%locally as this is the right kind of treatment for vaginal and vulval dermatosis

It can be due to dryness also as you have crossed 40 so apply mosturising lotion along with clobetasol

Best wishes

Take care
