You say your gynecologist diagnosed this tear, which is causing you sensitivity, pain, and burning. I’ll bet! Your gynecologist suggested using Estrace cream on the clitoris four times a day for a week.
Topical estrogen may be helpful for healing a sensitive area; it nourishes the tissues. Another product that’s likely to be helpful is Epigyn. This is a non-prescription, non-hormonal product designed to promote healing and integrity of the vulvar tissues. I’ve had patients with issues arising from menopause and other vulvar skin conditions express significant improvement with this product.
I suspect you’d benefit as well!
