Angry Yeast Infection Gone- Now Skin is DRY and irritated- What should I use to soothe it?

Thanks for the suggestions for yeast infection relief. I was miserable for a few days, but all your replies helped!

Okay, so now the infection's gone (thank goodness), but it left the skin in the area VERY dry and irritated and itchy (dry-skin-itchy, not yeast-itchy).

What should I use to soothe the skin and take care of the the dryness?

Thanks in advance!

Have you asked your GYN Dr.? or call the pharmacy they could probably help too. Good luck!

Ok, Calendula cream is good for sore skin - it is a natural antiseptic and is good for skin healing. Also, I would recommend Vitamin E cream for dry skin. It works like a dream.

If I were you, I would not bother calling the pharmacy. Why waste time when you could be using all the natural stuff?!!
