Re: Miserable and need relief
It could be Thrush (Candida) or it could be Hormonal related.
You should see your Dr who will do a Vaginal Swab to diagnose the problem. If its either one of these both can easily be treated.
Candida treatment is cream and Vaginal Pessary and if it's Hormonal and you just need treatment for that area a Vaginal HRT Pessary inserted once/twice a week will solve the problem.
Good Luck, I wish you well,
