The last few weeks I have been using Aveno unseated body wash. I had used it before and no problem. Atrophy is a terrible problem as it was for my mother. I have been celibate for 5 years and am 67 years old.
This past weekend it was time to put my Estrogen cream up my vagina. For the first time it burned and I had to wash it off. I have lichen sclerosis and use A&D ointment per Gino and really helps–had biopsy 7 years ago. This time my clitorus area was horribly sensitive and when I looked it was swollen about 3x the normal size. I took care, coated with A & D ointment and did not use soap or hormone cream. Seems to be better now. No indication of lichen sclerosis.
My problem is what should I use for washing my underarms., etc. when I was on a hormone patch I was fine. But I have never been celibate this long. Thank you!
