Hello from JA
What is your qeustion exactly?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have had an inflamed vulva for 10 months.
Over that time I have been sent for HRT
Have had many creams & lotions, mostly cortisone in varying amounts.
Nothing has worked.
I get some relief from hot & cold foments but no cure.
I have extreme discomfort & hoped that there may be an answer in alternative medicine.
I am 70 yrs old & a widow

You submitted to homeopathy
Do you understand what homeopathy is?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have used it in the past for myself & my animals.

Allopathy has had a fair go at this problem & as I have no Homeopathic practitioner I decided to try this way.
You may need to know the medications I am on just in case they could be implicated.

160mg Sotalol x 2 daily
Asprin 100mg x1 daily
Simvastatin 10mg x 1 daily
Glucosamine 1.5gm x 1 daily
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
simvastatin can cause rash or eczema.

Not exactlyh this, but I might switch to niaspan which works as well and is not a statin.
Classical homeopathy requires and initial visit of anywhere from 1.5 to 6 hours depending on the complexity of the case...the remedy that fits everything about the person as much as possible has to be seclected.

So finding a classical practitioner is essential.

Many people confuse this with naturopathy [herbs, vitamins and natrual therapies] of course, but to cure a skin problem a constitutional study and selection of a single remedy is required.

Finding a practitioner can be tricky, and I am not sure in New Zealand if you have a large contingent or not....but that is what is reauired.

Functionally, a nutrient dense, anti-inflammtory diet
This can be seen in detail, in the book, Eat to Live, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman..easy to obtain of the net or in book stores.
The diet, in order of preference in quantity, should look like this
leafy greens
green veggies
other veggies
whole fruit, beans and peas
Whole grains no yeasted breads, dry cereals or anything refined
Seeds and nuts, but cut out seeds if you have any diverticulosis.
A little tofu or tempeh daily
A little high quality soy or coconut milk yogurt

The soluble fiber in this strategy will stabilized colon function in about 6 to 8 weeks, then about 2 or three helpings of animal foods a week, preferably fish, can be added
This tends to stabilize the disorder.

good luck
