I have been on evorel patches for one month and my vulva is itching ...I thought I had thrush but no discharge. Is this a side effect of the patches and what can I but to stop the itching. Thanks

You may just need a moisturiser, but depending on your age, perhaps you could buy something stronger.

Why not ask your gp or practice nurse for a phone appointment?

After age 60 (I think) you're supposed to see a doc, rather than treating it yourself.

@Suz1066 have you tried Ovestin cream for internal use? It’s a localised supplementary oestrogen for the vagina vulva and bladder wall.
Your GP can advise, and prescribe.

A quick search showed that your problem is a side affect of these patches.

Ask your GP to check for Lichen Sclrorsus! An unpleasant condition but manageable and treatable .
