Brief Answer:
Oestradiol cream will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The vaginal dryness at your age is usually seen due to the hormonal changes seen due to menopause. To decrease the dryness and odour you can use a neutral vaginal wash and a good moisturizer like XXXXXXX butter locally. In case the problem persists then do consult your gynecologist and get estradiol cream prescribed for local use.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
