Labial adhesions do not need treatment if only a small portion of the vagina is infected and there are no symptoms. Symptoms may go away once puberty occurs and estrogen levels rise naturally.
However, for those patients with recurrent infections and discomfort, treatment with a topical estrogen cream (Premarin) may help separate the labia.
Following the estrogen therapy, Vaseline applied daily may help prevent the adhesions from forming again.
Practice correct wiping technique from front to back.
