Detailed Answer:
Hi dear

At this age juncture hormonal imbalance is quite imminent. And thus menopause symptoms of many variety make the person disturbed. Dryness of the skin and mucosal area is quite irritative.

You may be allergic or your skin might not be tolerating to any of the prescribed salt leading to the itching sensation. Stop the cream and discuss with you doctor regarding your problem.

Uploaded picture of your lesion might have helped me to explain you better.

In my opinion any Moisturizer cream (simple glycerine) plus some mild steroidal cream like beclamethasone and antifungal (like clotrimazole or miconazole) salt combination with relieve you from the itching and soreness. Plus some antihistamine oral tablet (cetrizine etc) once a day relieves the itching up to some extent

Hope the query is answered. Please feel free for further clarification.

Thanks

I took Loratadine accidentally before waiting 24 hours-symptoms seemed to clear up some (less itching), but last time waited the 24 hours recommended on the box. My question is would it hurt to take it more often, as the itching is getting a little worse again, Thank you

use combination,

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear.
Sorry for the unexpected delay because of cyclone.

Please continuing applying the cream containing steroid. Symptoms should go off with some time.

If the loratidine is not effective then one can think of changing to ATARAX (Hydoxaline) 25 mg twice daily. This salt is more effective.

The local application of cream will bring you relief from the symptoms.

All the best.

Thanks
