User :   1) for the vaginal cuts, leave them alone to heal, keep area dry and clean, wash with lukewarm water. avoid douching. wear loose cotton undergarments
User :   2) for the pain during periods, you might need further investigations. consider meeting a gynecologist (not regular doctor) for examination and tests like
User :   blood work-up, hormonal analysis, ultrasound scan
User :   to look for serious underlying causes like ovarian cyst, adenomyosis, adhesions, hormonal imbalanaces
User :   as these would require adequate treatment.
User :   can you suggest some ointment or something
User :   have you followed what I have said?
User :   and food too that i can take to help me bear the pain
User :   you can apply Caladryl lotion on the 'cuts'' that you describe
User :   in food avoid having stale food, have freshly prepared food, avoid meat diet
User :   take plenty of citrus fruit juices
User :   u mean lemon and oranges
User :   yes, lemon, oranges, sweet lime
User :   you can also take apple, cranberry and grape juice
User :   ok how long do these injuries take to heal?
User :   if these are mild and not deep, they should heal in 1-2 days time
User :   oh
User :   if you develop itching, burning, pain, pus discharge
User :   then report to your gynecologist for a check
User :   as these would signal possibilities of infection
User :   ok dr....but as i said i have not taken any medication let themn alone for the past 3 months but still am having lot of pain
User :   in that case, you will need to get them examined once to know the current status
User :   and go ahead with a vaginal smear test for observation under microscope and for culture
User :   to identify the causative agent and treat the infection appropriately.
User :   ok how do i apply that lotion?
User :   apply using sterile cotton wisp or use sterile cotton buds
User :   use one bud at a time
User :   would it burn?
User :   do not out the cotton bud back into lotion bottle to take for next time as it will infect the entire bottle
User :   ok
User :   no, it will not burn, it is to soothe the pain and burning
User :   ok how long should i use this ?
User :   and when should i apply this?
User :   what time of the day?
User :   for 2-3 days, and if you do not find any improvement, then do not delay your visit to gynecologist.
