Brief Answer: vaginal soreness. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for answering the questions. I have analyzed your history completely, your vaginal soreness could have been caused by sweating and friction around the vagina, so try and make sure that you wear loose clothing/ undergarments around that area. Avoid using soap and bubble bath for the time being; just wash with warm water. Keep the area clean and dry. For pain relief you can take some analgesics, I usually give ibuprofen (or any other NSAID-non steroidal anti inflammatory drug) for my patients with similar complaints. If you want to use a little moisturizer in that area, go for aloe vera gel, but only apply a small amount. Also if you develop any fever or redness or induration in that area its better to take a course of antibiotics, kindly speak with your doctor regarding this. Canasten is antifungal cream, kindly stop using the cream. It is not advisable to use the cream for more than 10 days. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

I am on week 8 of the Nicotrol patch, have pretty much finished menopause, but I've been having frequent hot flashes. Also, I live in Phoenix, Az, where it's very hot these days! But, I think I'd still have them, even if it was winter. I am 57yr old, 108 lb, 5'3".

I am 53 and started a very heavy period on 2nd December. I have now been bleeding for 4 months and am currently taking 10 x 5mg Primolut per day which has minimized the bleeding but not stopped it. I am diabetic, have Hep C and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I have had a Hysteroscopy and D & C with no signs of cancer. My next option is a hysterectomy. I want to know if taking Primolut for so long is harmful to my liver? Blood tests have shown I am not yet going through menopause. Thank you.
