Customer Question

I had a complete hysterectomy over 20 years ago. I am now 77 yrs old. I have had sever vaginal itching for several months. It is getting worse. I wear a pad for "urine"
leaking" and I do leak sometimes, I change the pad when it gets wet, and wash the area with a lot wash cloth and warm water, but the area is severely itchy. I do not have GYN oB since I have not needed one. What could be causing this etch??and how do I get rid of it? Thank you for an answer.

Hello,

the problem you describe can be caused by a local lack of hormones. This can be resolved by using an estrogen-containing creme like Gynoflor. Please contact an OB/GYN for prescription.

Hope you get well soon, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
