I could have gone straight to my doctor. If it was just a case of getting a prescription from my doctor for this cream . You have not answered the question to what is / or has caused the problem. I wish to cancel any further assistance from you.

itchy and sore can be from vaginal atrophy from lack of estrogen, or it could be from a fungal infection or other infection.
