Suggest treatment for severe vaginal pain

default
Posted on Mon, 31 Jul 2017
Question: I have intense vaginal pain,
. It feels sore and inflamed, even my clitoris is sore. I also have cronic constipation or the runs. I don't have a UTI or a yeast infection. I went to the gynecologist. She won't give me hormones until I see a gastroenterologist next month. Is there anything I can get OTC besides vagisil or cortisone cream which doesn't help me? I'm a 66 year old miserable female.

Brief Answer: XXXXXXX butter can help.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The soreness and inflammation that you have is likely to be due to estrogen deficiency that causes vaginal dryness and irritation. The only way to help this is by local application of estrogen cream. You can use XXXXXXX butter also to help decrease the dryness. Avoid using any soap in the area.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
