Hi Pearl. I am 54 and post menopausal for 4 years. I have terrible itching and burning just on my clitoris. It's so embarrassing. I have no discharge of any sort. I'm not sure what to do.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

4 months at minimum

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

During intercourse it feels like glass

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.In post menopausal women,hormonal changes are resposnsible for a lot of symptoms.Though itching and burning is usually associated with a fungal infection(infact the use of antifungal crams like Lotrimin/Clotrimazole would be correct ),but lack of oestrogen may also be responsible for this.Aging will also cause changes in the vulva,lichen planus/sclerosus,Psoraisi,allergy to soaps/detergents /female hygiene products containing perfume/allergy to KY jellyand allergy to latex in condoms or condom lubricants may be the cause.You need the help of your Gynaecologist who can examine you and guide you further after examining and investigating you..Using an antifungal cream initially will probably be right.

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.
