Customer Question
I am a 59...

I am a 59 yr old female, been through menopause. When I wash my labia, it itches and never feels relieved no matter how long it’s itched. Also dry but not extremely.

Doctor's Assistant: What symptoms are you having? When did menopause start?

Just itching. Had Endometrial ablation-01/24/2007 no more periods after maybe May 2008.

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap test, and what were the results? Any swelling, discoloration, or unusual smells?

01/11/2017 nothing found. No.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, such itching can be any number of things in menopause.

It could be from decreased estrogen, it could be an infection such as a yeast infection.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And afterward, apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with 1% Clotrimazole ointment twice a day.
Clean the area with DIAL soap and use OTC Abzorb powder afterward.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

You can apply moisturizers like Replens to prevent the injury to the dry vagina.

If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
