Depends...: Its important to know the cause of the irritation to the skin. Different causes have different treatments. For example: If from an infection--treat with appropriate antibiotic; If from menopause related dryness--treat with estrogen vaginal cream; if from sexual trauma--treat with vaginal rest, sometimes estrogen, and the use of lubricants. Your doctor can guide you. Best wishes!
