Customer: I had CIN III cervical cells removed through surgery and I have Endometriosis

Got it--hold on please

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 20 days ago.

Nothing serious there

It's a common fungal infection

Nothing to do with hygiene

You can clear that up with over the counter topical canesten/clotrimazole cream applied twice a day for a week

Please let me know if you need any more information

Yes that will go away too
