I'm pretty sure I have vaginal atrophy and, when I went to the surgery a day ago I saw a nurse practitioner. She was quite concerned as my vulva and labia are red and sore - I've had the itching and soreness for some time. She prescribed Betnovate, twice a day and I'm to go back in a fortnight for a follow-up.
However, I've read the leaflet with the cream and it says quite clearly 'not to be used on private parts'. So, I'm now quite worried. Am I going to make things worse?
I'm going to ring the surgery tomorrow and, hopefully, see a doctor, but just wondered if anyone else has been prescribed a steroid cream to use in this area. If your symptoms were similar, what treatment was offered? I've just been using a vaginal moisturiser since having this problem, but it's obviously not very effective.
