Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Based on the description it appears that you could be having inflammation around your genital area.
You can use Soframycin or Neomycin cream externally. But before doing it, kindly wash the region with mild antiseptic solution like Savlon twice daily.
Since you have associated symptoms, it would be ideal for you to take a course of Tablet.Metronidazole.
Use vaginal pH balancing solution like 'v wash' regularly.
Wear loose fitting undergarments to avoid friction in the area and to provide proper ventilation.
Abstain from sexual activities till the symptoms subside completely.
Maintain good personal hygiene.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
