Brief Answer:
Wash and dry before applying ointment

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns. This burning area you are describing is due to the chronic inflammation caused by yeast infection.

I suggest you clean the burning area twice a day with soap and water and make it dry.

You can apply ointment after one hour of drying.

This will reduce burning.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

I treated yeast infection and did what you as far as washing with soap twice a day and burning has stopped. No discharge, no odor, no itching. I'm assuming that this has cleared up. So back pain can be from other causes?

Brief Answer:
Good to know it has cleared up

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This could be temporary clearance. If it appears again, you have to repeat what I suggested. Yeast infections are likely to repeat.
