My GP prescribed Cetraben cream to wash 'down there' and Timodene cream to treat it with and it cleared up after 2 weeks. Still using the Cetraben cream to wash with (can be bought over the counter) and get the odd twinge of soreness but just put a bit of Vagisan moisturising cream on then.
I asked my consultant about it and he said I could now use a hormone cream twice weekly and he wrote down a name of one to ask my GP about. I will ask her next week when I see her but it has been ok this week - will see what she says.
Hope yours clears up soon!
Thank you for your kind words, I was so pleased with the results too! :-)
