Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
Are you asking for a material that does Not stick to your skin essentially?
Because there is a material called TELFA that does this.
yes that is what my family remembers is that since my skin was so stretched and sensitive they didn't remember it having an adhesive. This is just in a delicate place where it there isn't room to breath and I really think excess moisture could be causing the problem.
Also, apply an Antifungal cream such as Clotrimazole will help too.
IT is not an adhesive and it does NOT stick to the skin - and that is the beauty of that material - it does not cause any injury to the skin
and, I use it with Antifungal cream on women like you - and this should help you
Can I get that cream over the counter or do I need to call my dr? I will see about TELFA that may be what they used. So this isn't uncommon to bleed from those sides?
Now, many hospitals Around the country have what is known as a 'Wound Clinic' - and they carry these bandages essentially - so I would check with a Hospital and ask for the Wound Clinic
you can get the Clotrimazole cream OTC - it does not need a prescription
Also can you cut the TEFLA into the pieces or sizes you need?
The Telfa might be difficult to get without a wound clinic - but it is very readily available
You can cut these into any size you want -
Ok I will get to work on that. So the bleeding from these areas isn't uncommon?
Is it normally due to moisture and infection?
no it is not and that is why the clotrimazole might help you
so it could just be a yeast infection causing all of this - given your medical history
Wow, not knowing that I just thought yeast infections would occur inside the vaginal areas I didn't realize they could occur there as well and that could be it and cause the bleeding and pain?
yes they can
I wish you welll
You can always ask me questions - just ask for Dr Owen
