Vaginal Dryness: Non-Hormone Option
While not life threatening, vaginal dryness can be like a pebble in your shoe. It is irritating and unpleasant, but not all women want to go on hormone therapy to address this one issue. Also, not all vaginal dryness is caused by reduced estrogen levels. We are often asked about treating individual symptoms, and vaginal dryness can be at the top of the list.
One option is a non-hormonal vaginal maintenance cream. At John Hollis Pharmacy, we compound a formulation with hyaluronic acid as the primary active ingredient and additional vitamins for increased relief. Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan normally found in our bodies that is part of extracellular maintenance and is secreted by the body during tissue repair. It has a high safety profile, no hormone-like adverse effects, and it works rapidly to reduce symptoms of vaginal dryness. This is a safe and effective treatment to restore the moisture barrier. Have your doctor call us for this natural, non-hormonal alternative!
Happy Easter and healthy living with John Hollis Pharmacy!
