My current favorite is called V Magic and is available on Amazon. It is a non-petroleum based ointment.
From the original post, I recently learned that I should/could have tried testosterone and progesterone creams.
I have also tried Capacin Cream...once...never again.
And there is a medical marijuana product called Foria for female vaginal pain. I haven't used it yet, but ordered it.
You have likely experimented with various topicals to improve your vulvar symptoms. These are all safe according to dermatologists, pain specialists, and vulvar pain specialists that I have asked.
My favorites are:
- 1% Hydrocortizone (over the counter) reduces inflammation and builds up your skin thickness (at higher levels, it actually deteriorates skin health and thins out the tissue. Don't use a higher level);
- KY Silk-E, (over the counter) provides protection against rubbing when the pain isn't too bad;
- Acid Mantle Cream (over the counter) to use when your burning is bad;
- Crisco (my new favorite);
- Hydrogen Peroxide used just before the Crisco.
- Lidocain and Prilocaine Cream 2.5%/2.5% (prescription) numbs your nerves, but burns;
- Lidocain Hydrochloride Jelly 2% (prescription), numbs your nerves, but burns;
- Lidoderm Lidocaine Patches 5% (prescription), numbs you out, a hassle to apply - it adheres like a sticker onto your vulva;
- Estrace Cream .01% (prescription), builds up skin thickness, but also affects your overall estrogen; levels
- Elidel 1% (prescription), an immunosuppressant typically used for eczema;
- Chromyln custom-made in a grape-seed oil base (prescription), anti-allergy.
- Capacin Cream (over the counter), supposed to burn like hell, but kill off nerve hyper-sensation;
- Estrogen and Androgen Cream custom-made (prescription), a relatively new idea.
