This was prescribed by a Dermatologist as a last resort. Specialists in this area are out of answers. For over 1 yr. I have had dryness, irritation and redness in my genital area around the vulva. No breaking out, no sores or discharge. I just feel like I've used sandpaper as a substitute for toilet tissue. I'm 68 and past menopause. Any answers or ideas anyone. I'm suppose to use this ointment for 1 wk. and then move on to Protopic for 3 weeks.
