Detailed Answer:
Hello

Welcome to healthcare magic.

The sore and itchy vagina can be due to following 2 reasons

1. Vaginal dryness due to estrogen deficiency as you are 50 years old. You can estrogen vaginal cream during sex and see if it relieves your pain.

2. Infection in your vagina is another possibility. Request your doctor to send high vaginal swab for culture and sensitivity test. The report will identify the organism affecting and you can take antibiotics or vaginal creams accordingly.

I hope your doubt is cleared now.

Brief Answer:
Estrogen deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Hello

That is what I had replied in my last reply.

There seems to be chronic infection. That is why you have been suffering since many years.

No creams used to help you. You had temporary relief because the creams were not effective.

You need to diagnose infection causing organism. Therefore get high vaginal swab tested and take treatment according to report. That is scientific way to treat.

There is no strong or weak cream.

I hope your doubt is cleared.
