Dr. Peredo explains how a woman can advocate for herself at the doctor's office.
If the treatment options or physician is not sympathetic or responsive to the treatment, I would say look for another physician. If the condition doesn’t improve with the treatment, insist on changing the treatment, or at times even skin biopsy may be needed to rule out other things, other diagnoses.
