Hormonal?: Are you periods normal? You may be having a hormonal imbalance that is causing dryness. A blood test can determine this. Or you may have a vaginal pH imbalance that is not allowing the normal flora to be in balance. The treatment is different if the pH is high vs. low, so this needs to be checked. Or you may be having an allergic reaction. Consider a gyne who also does holistic medicine.
