Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sorry to hear about your symptoms.

Low estrogen level will cause dryness and also frequent fungal infections.

There is also possibility of lichen sclerosis lesions --this is an autoimmune condition affecting the vaginal lining.

Estrogen vaginal cream daily should be considered.

Super infection should be treated with anti fungal medication.

What have you tried so far?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
