I was using INTRAROSA, a vaginal hormone suppository for 3 weeks. I saw my dermatologist last Friday and after examination she said it is probably yeast. She prescribed NYSTATIN, an ointment to use on vulva. I then saw my GYN yesterday and she took samples to see if i have an infection. I also told her that I am taking PREDNISONE & BENADRYL since I broke out in hives over the weekend. She thinks it may be the INTRAROSA since i had no problem with NYSTATIN before. She asked if i wear sanitary pads. i told her that i have been wearing them for years. She suggested to try not to wear them on a regular basis since they may be irritating the vulva. She told me to use FREE AND CLEAR laundry detergent and try to sleep without underwear. She examinec me and said i have some moderate atrophy but nothing too terrible. She prescribed PREMARIN, an estrogen cream to use nightly for 2 weeks and to continue with the NYSTATIN for the vulva. Has anyone tried all cotton, fragrance free cotton inserts to be attached to underwear instead of sanitary pads. I also have slight incontinence. I continue to take baking soda sitz baths. I appreciate any advice.
