Metronidazole cream will help with both.

You will have to have your doctor prescribe it.

It is an antibiotic cream, but it is very effective.

You usually will have to start will using it twice a day.

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.
