i do find it hard to talk to my mom about things
i come from very traditional family and mom will talk to her sisters n relatives that make me keep things to myself..
as i grow older now with a kid coming along the way.. sometimes she is still the best person to go too.. its not easy to accept that fact but family still a family..
if you cant trust your mom about it, going to the gyne should be able to help your condition. you went through so much and whether anot to trust her is up to yourself how comfortable you are..
since she gave you a cream and it should be help but if doesnt, then there is something else that cant be seen by a "naked" eye
of coz is worrying but what you can do is apply the cream as instructed and let it heal
wound takes time to heal..
hope everything will be fine...
