Customer Question

I have now had a second incident whereby my clitoris is enlarged and is very painful. It does not last days but I do not know how to get relief
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Since last night just before bedtime. I have used Polysporin on it but no real difference. I was wondering if I should rest with a cool cloth or something. I figured putting warmth on it was not a good idea
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Osteoarthritis and Hypothyroidism
