Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Do you have any vaginal discharge?

Is this soreness in the vagina or the anus?

Regards

No discharge. Soreness both in the vag and anus too. I have hemorrohoids too

I would appreciate if you may answer via chat

Thanks for the details

Anal soreness can be due to hemorrhoid

The soreness in vagina can be due to yeast infection

You should use Canesten vaginal for that and Anusol cream for hemorrhoid

Hopefully that will settle the problem

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Which anusol cream may I use and would you specify which canesten cream to use
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
P.S! For how long these two creams should be used.

You should use Canesten vaginal cream for one week

And Anusol cream for a couple of weeks

Please do let me know if you have any other question
