  • Extrem pain

    Im have not been diagnoised with vv but I sure suspect it. It burns, its raw irritated and even feels hot to the touch. My gyno did a biopsy and said the skin is thinning due to age and lack of estrogen (which I have been on for years due to a hesto.) so he increased my estrogen and gave me steriod cream to thicken the skin. That has been over a month and no change still so painful. Any suggestions on what will relive this pain? Please help, Im desperate for relief.

    Thank you - Montie

    Sometimes nerve medications, like neurontin (generic is gabapentin) can help. Also, tricyclic antidepressants. Besides that, you could ask for lidocaine to numb the pain for short periods of time, or use ice. If you continue not seeing improvement, there are other creams available. I had to go through about 5 to finally find one that helped even a little.
