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

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.
