Estradiol vaginal (local) is used to treat certain symptoms of menopause such as dryness, burning, and itching of the vaginal area. Estradiol vaginal also reduces urgency or irritation of urination.

For vaginal infections you should use an antifungal cream such as miconazole cream, clotrimazole cream, etc.
