Brief Answer: Could be mild vaginal infection. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX After analyzing your answers I feel you might be having vaginal infection (probably bacterial vaginosis or mild candidial infection), and may be due to excoriation there might be some amount of vaginal dryness. Considering other things like normal periods, no vaginal discharge, my advice is you can ignore the present symptom. If you are very concerned about the present symptom you can apply vaginal cream which contains Clobetasol for local application. Kindly visit your doctor for prescription. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer: No medication for just vaginal dryness. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, For just dryness symptom I do not advise you any medication currently. But, if the itching increases or if there is any associated vaginal discharge, then you can apply the cream which I have mentioned in my previous answer. If you do not have any further clarification you can close the discussion. Kindly rate & review my answer. Wish you good health.
