Radiation to private area

I have had radiation treatment for anal rectal skin cancer. The main problems have been skin irritations including hemorrhoids, herpes breakouts, urine and feces leaking. The latest treatment was for vaginal dryness. Doctor and pharmacist prescribed Premarin - huge breakouts, including hemorrhoidal flaring and vaginal herpes. Then a concocted lotion using a base of the lubricant I have been using for years, plus estrogen. Now my vaginal opening is all white, like cottage cheese. No discharge and not going away or drying up after four days of not using the concoction. This was supposed to help with lichen schlerosis.
