my mother who is 87 ha been having burning and itching in her vagina for 8 months now. We have tried vagisil, and most recently, an estrogen cream. Nothing has worked. What do you think it could be and what would you recommend. She is so unhappy and uncomfortable most of the time.
Thank you for your help.
I would suggest taking your mother to your family doctor. Where I live,
you have to get a referral from your family doctor to a gynecologist.
This must be extremely uncomfortable and painful for your mom.
A gynecologist would be the best person to help her. Good luck. Eve
