    Not sure which AC you're using but the ones I've tried still burned me. I was using lemons but they've gotten so expensive. Which brand do you use?

    Good old lube doesn't work well on thinning skin aka vaginal atrophy. For this condition you can take hormones pills, rx or otc, or use coconut oil or vitamin E. I currently take an otc hormone pill that works to strengthen the skin, improves wetness, and labido. Not what I was expecting but it feels great not be dry.

      I have vaginal atrophy and use estriol cream and it's helping but still not right.  Think it takes a long time. Do you rub anything into the front area because I feel funny tingling there. I can't use coconut oil am well and truly allergic to it.  

      There are lots of ladies here with the same problems.

      I use a cream that's called miconazole nitrate vulvar cream 2% for itchiness but it came with the miconazole nitrate vaginal cream as an extra, which I found to work really well. So i don't know if you can find it by itself. Maybe look online for it. You can try vitamin E oil, but in pure form, and not as a blend.

      Please go back to the NHS re the Aqueous cream. I’ve seen the NICE guidelines withdrawing it.  If you do a google search you’d see the numerous medical journals citing the issues with using it.  My own consultant was horrified by me using it!

    Be very careful with Aqueous cream. I’ve only found one brand without SLS in it and that is a big irritant to skin and actually thins the skin. The NHS have banned Aqueous cream for that reason. I certainly wouldn’t use it anywhere that sensitive. I made the mistake of using it on my face and had itchy irritated skin for months.
