Hi XXXXXXX

If you can respond to the questions I asked you about the problems you told me about, we can go a little deeper into what might be going on.

One symptom I forgot to respond to was about the vaginal burning and itching. This can be caused by an irritation from yeast, most likely. You can try an over the counter anti-yeast cream such as clotrimazole to see if that fixes the problem. You can also take baths with a cup of apple cider vinegar in the water or wash with a wash cloth that has a mixture of half water and half apple cider vinegar.
