Please, those of you who have similar problem, post your replies, and attempted treatments, all contributions are helpful.
Dear couldusesomehelp! I have suffered for this past year with a little bit of everything,but the main problem was a yeast one.I had lenhens planus in the vagina area.Very red and raw.I went to many doctors with all types of creams,pills,lotions,etc.I couldn't keep the area dry for it to heal.Finally I thought of Balmex.What you use for babies.This white cream helped me to heal and you can put it on everytime you go to the bathroom.This should help any rawness.
